Nonprofit Resource Center
The NRC has also partnered with Radford University to deliver the Nonprofit Development Leadership and Management Certificate program. This certificate program is an outreach initiative designed to support the educational and training needs of nonprofit organizations serving communities in the Southwest region of Virginia. In 2009 the Council of Community Services received funding through the Strengthening Community Fund (SCF) grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families. The purpose of the funding, in part, is to provide Training and Technical Assistance to help nonprofit faith-based and community organizations better serve those in need and to increase nonprofit organizations’ involvement in the economic recovery. Through this grant, 12 organizations have received Technical Assistance from the NRC.

Welcome to the NRC!
Having worked closely with many nonprofits over the past 18 months through the Strengthening Community Fund grant, the staff and Steering Committee of the Nonprofit Resource Center of Western Virginia are keenly aware of the benefits nonprofits can glean by working together and by focusing on internal operations. In the coming year the NRC will offer more trainings and opportunities to work collaboratively with other nonprofits, for-profits, and local government. As a member you will have access to these trainings and technical assistance at a reduced rate. Other benefits of membership are:
Reduced fees for workshops/seminars: The Nonprofit Resource Center, Radford University, University of Virginia and Virginia Tech are partnering to expand the Nonprofit Development Leadership and Management Certificate Program originally developed by Radford University.
Research Assistance; two hours of pro bono data research to use in grant proposal writing and reports.
Discounted trainings and seminars on fundraising, board development, financial management, organizing and running effective meetings, grant proposal writing, and more!
Access to the expanded Members Only section of the NRC website to include links and resources of interest to all nonprofits including jobs postings and tools and services.

We are especially pleased that the coming year brings new partnerships…in addition to Radford University, the NRC now partners with the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech in offering seminars and courses. The new partnerships offer the NRC the opportunity to expand and enhance the offerings that can assist participants in building their nonprofits’ capacity to provide effective and efficient services to the community.
We believe you will find great value in being a member of the NRC and look forward to working with you!
