County nonprofit organizations attend workshop in Barbour Coutny


Tucker and Barbour Community Foundations worked together to host a workshop for county nonprofit organizations on Tuesday.  

The Nonprofit Capacity Building Workshop is geared toward teaching organizations how to better utilize resources available and work alongside other nonprofits. The presentation setting worked to teach officials how to access training, grow awareness, and continue to adapt to the communities they serve.

Tucker Community Foundation Executive Director Robert Burns says the workshop is an opportunity to share resources.

“Some agencies know that they exist or don’t have time to actually get out past their own specific goals to talk to other nonprofits and what other resources are out there, and in general it’s good for nonprofits to be able to talk to each other because they might have shared resources they can bring to bear,” said Burns.

“They are all at different levels of readiness, if you will, to do things.  So, it’s not just one training each month it’s delivering the training in ways that they can most utilize it,” said WV Nonprofit Association USDA RCDI Grant Coordinator Tasha Anderson.

Officials had the opportunity to network and learn how to better prepare for the future. Participants were invited to attend the Nonprofit Leadership Summit in late September.
