Description


The Johnson Center is happy to host this particular Nonprofit Board Certification Program for community members and nonprofits on behalf of the Lakeshore Nonprofit Alliance and the Community Foundation of Holland/Zeeland Area.

The program covers the following topics:

  • The roles, responsibilities and legal duties of boards

  • Nonprofit board structures and effective practices

  • Nonprofit strategies for funding and impact

Participants completing all four hours receive a Certificate in Nonprofit Board Leadership from the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University.

A meal will be provided.
