The West Marin Fund hosted two concurrent workshops and a rousing holiday party, with 50 people attending. The workshops were:
The Role of a Non-Profit Board of Directors. West Marin consultant and long-time non-profit Executive Director Carol Friedman outlined the basics and tapped her own deep experience, as well as answered specific needs of the audience.
Using Facebook as a Tool for Fundraising and Outreach. Brain van Weele, Director of Philanthropic Planning at Marin Community Foundation, hosts a Facebook page for a small non-profit he serves. He has become wildly enthusiastic about this medium and offered case studies, answered questions, and brought a show-and-tell success story.
