LACF News:
Next LACF Nonprofit Training:
  • Attracting and Nurturing Volunteers: Part II - A Conversation
  • Linda Boncella, Los Alamos Volunteer Association (LAVA)
  • Diana Martinez, Los Alamos Family YMCA
  • Todd Nickols, Los Alamos Historical Society
  • 5-6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14
  • UNM-LA, Bldg. 2, Room 203 (note change in room from usual)
Based on our popular session last October, we are continuing our conversation on volunteer engagement. Join us for this interactive panel discussion. This time, we will engage with Linda Boncella, director of Los Alamos Volunteer Association, who can provide some more insight into the volunteer perspective. Returning will be Diana Martinez, of the Family Y, and Todd Nickols of the LA Historical Society. We will discuss the joys (and pains) of engaging the community in our nonprofit efforts.
Among the topics we may touch on are:
  • How to recruit and retain volunteers for your organization
  • Different ways to recognize the work of your volunteers
  • Identify resources for developing or strengthening your own volunteer program
  • How to engage youth volunteers
  • Recruiting  volunteers to help with programming
  • Preparing for group volunteer activities.

Bring your ideas and questions regarding this lifeblood of any nonprofit organization.

Nonprofit training sessions sponsored by Los Alamos Community Foundation are made possible with generous support from UNM-Los Alamos and the LANL Foundation.

Center for Nonprofit Excellence in Albuquerque provides other training opportunities 

The Center for Nonprofit Excellence, sponsored by United Way of Central New Mexico, provides ongoing low-cost training opportunities for nonprofits. If you are in the Albuquerque area, you may want to take advantage of their resources in training and other areas. We are also delighted that they have asked that our training series be advertised through their website, so we hope to see some regional nonprofits take advantage of our training sessions as well. Their training series can be reviewed at the site below:
