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.

This year's digital training series is brought to you by Park Community Credit Union!

All organization's are encouraged 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.
