CNS Learn@Lunch Series

CNS Learn@Lunch Series

In our Learn@Lunch series, we’re offering four bite-sized nonprofit trainings for orgs like yours. You’ll walk away with practical tips and resources to maximize the impact of your organization! At each location across the Willamette Valley, we offer four one-hour workshops over the lunch break so you can easily join us to learn and improve.

“CNS offered a Learn@Lunch series of workshops in my area covering some great fundraising and board development topics. These workshops were inexpensive, accessible, and thoughtfully executed in a “bite-sized” fashion to reach busy non-profit staff and volunteers with vital information. L@L is a great model and will make me look for more CNS programming. Thank you for being a great resource for non-profits, CNS!” –Emily James, Heartland Humane Society
