Strategic Planning

Led by Maribeth Wright of Rea and Associates

Thursday, June 14th from 12:30-2:00 pm

Join Maribeth Wright for a lively discussion of what every executive director and nonprofit board member needs to know about financial statements.  You will leave this session with a good understanding of best practices for creating a sound budget, how to identify and interpret key indicators to understand financial statements, and how financial measures are used in planning for your organization.  So grab a board member and more about the different types of financial statements and reports (balance sheets, cash flows, P&L’s etc.). If you are interested please contact the Regional Nonprofit Alliance to RSVP at 740-597-1686, or

We would also like to thank Dan Farkas for facilitating the Lunch and Learn session Social Media, which took place on October 13th. We would also like to thank him for helping the Appalachian Community Visiting Nurse Association, Hospice, and Health Services with the creation of a facebook page for their organization.


Training Workshop Archives

    In 2009, the Regional Nonprofit Alliance, together with four collaborative partners, was awarded a Together Ohio: Community Engagement Partnership Grant through the Governor's Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives to deliver high quality capacity building and technical assistance to nonprofit organizations in 15 counties.  The collaborative partners, along with the Regional Nonprofit Alliance, include Sojourners Care Network, The Corporation for Ohio Appalachian Development, the Stevens Literacy Center at Ohio University, and the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University, worked together to create the Together Ohio: Southeast Regional Collaborative.  As part of this grant, a series of free workshops were offered. These workshops were recorded on DVD. They are available to check out through the Regional Nonprofit Alliance.
