Webinars & Training Videos
The Community Foundation of Louisville is committed to providing resources to help nonprofits build capacity. New this year, the Foundation has created a Guiding Giving Day Success series to provide nonprofits direct support to help them build successful giving day campaigns - especially in the midst of COVID-19. This new webinar series will replace the in-person training camp.
The Foundation encourages all organizations to attend each of the planned webinars in both series. If a participating organization attends 3 of the 4 Guiding Giving Day Success sessions during their live recording, they will be entered in a raffle to win 1 of 3 $500 prizes during the giving day in September.
