GREENCASTLE -- On May 24, the Putnam County Community Foundation, with sponsor TCU, will host a workshop on how to prevent fraud and mismanagement and teach participants financial best practices in nonprofit governance.
Phil Purcell, attorney and vice president of the Ball State Foundation, will teach this session, which is a part of the Putnam County Community Foundation's Non-Profit Learning Series for community members who staff or volunteer with non-profit organizations and wish to build capacity in areas of fundraising, governance, marketing and more. Workshops are informative, engaging and includes a catered lunch.
The workshop will be held at the Walden Inn from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The cost to attend is $15 per person if registered by May 17 or $25 per person after the 17th. This normally expensive workshop is being offered at a reasonable price due in large part to TCU.
The portion of the program from 12:30 to 1:30 will include a lunch panel discussion with experts and local community members who have best practices to share or who can share their own story of financial issues and they overcame it with sound policies and practices.
This workshop is perfect for volunteers with student groups, youth leagues, small non-profits and churches.
To register for this workshop, you must complete a registration form at www.pcfoundation.org and pay at the time of registration. For more information, contact Eric Wolfe, community development director at the Community Foundation, at 653-4978.
