First United Bank and Trust, the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation and United Way of the Eastern Panhandle present quarterly Community Workshops & Nonprofit Training Programs. Instituted in December 2017, these “Lunch & Learn Nonprofit Seminars” have broad appeal and provide area nonprofit organizations with a wealth of information. We are grateful for the support of our partners (and for the free lunch that is provided by First United Bank & Trust).
Our most recent “Lunch & Learn Nonprofit Seminar” was led by Jeff Feldman of Eagle’s View Enterprises. Jeff and international NGO consultant Meg Kinghorn have developed the SOAR program for nonprofit organizations which focuses on Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results. Attendees were treated to a truly inspirational presentation and when Meg returns from Africa, we will be looking to her and Jeff to expand on what we learned.
Earlier in 2019, a Lunch and Learn Seminar featured members of the media who shared ideas on how nonprofit organizations can create effective public relations campaigns by providing news releases and photographs that will be used by all channels of media including print, radio, and video.
Currently, our Affiliate Director Amy Pancake is working on a special two-day Grant Writing Workshop that will be presented by Volunteer West Virginia and the Hampshire and Hardy County Community Foundations on November 6th and 7th at the South Branch Inn in Romney, West Virginia. For information about upcoming workshops and training programs, please call Executive Director Michael Whalton at 304-264-0353 or email mwhalton@EWVCF.org
