Nonprofit Education

Main Street Community Foundation partners with local organizations and businesses to offer its Nonprofit Education Series. As part of this series, MSCF will offer web/audioconferences on topics of interest to enhance the development and knowledge of nonprofit Board members, professionals and volunteers in collaboration with the Association of Fundraising Professionals Connecticut Chapter (AFP)

All sessions are offered at no charge to local nonprofits.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not expecting to hold any workshops in 2021. More information, including session descriptions and presentations, will be posted once we are able to safely hold workshops. 

If you have any questions or would like to be added to our distribution list please contact Samantha Rajotte, Scholarship & Program Officer, at or by telephone at 860.583.6363.
