Lake Placid, New York – Adirondack Foundation is offering a seminar called “Money for Nonprofits: How to Raise It, How to Manage It” on Saturday, December 8, at Tupper Arts, in Tupper Lake. This day of professional development is geared toward small nonprofits, and will be led by Andy Robinson, who has trained and supported thousands of nonprofit staff and volunteer leaders in 47 states and across Canada.

In addition to tips on financial management, participants will learn to build a fundraising program that honors their mission, engages potential donors, and raises more money.

Anyone who works for a nonprofit organization or serves on a nonprofit board is welcome to attend. The registration fee is $40, which includes training, materials and lunch. For organizations with budgets of $100,000 or less, the discounted cost is $10.

“Financial resources and high quality staff and volunteer Board members are the rocket fuel for strong community organizations,” said Cali Brooks, President and CEO, Adirondack Foundation. “This is a great opportunity for local nonprofits, and we are grateful to one of our newest area nonprofits, Tupper Arts, for hosting the event.”
