Field Trips to the Public Library: Meet Your Nonprofit Librarian
Did you know that both High Point and Greensboro have nonprofit/small business librarians? The library is full of free resources that can help you shape and grow the nonprofit organization you serve. Each month, we gather a small group of nonprofit leaders for a 90-minute visit to the library to meet the librarian and explore resources available to them. Leaders leave the session with a lot of knowledge and a list of grants opportunities* tailored to their organization’s mission that they might consider pursuing. (The lists are generated through Foundation Directory, which is available for free when accessed within a library building in both Greensboro and High Point.) Check the Consortium’s events page for upcoming opportunities.
Board Matching Service
The Consortium is working with Leadership Greensboro and Leadership High Point to pilot an opportunity for program graduates who are interested in board service to connect with nonprofit organizations that are actively seeking new board members. The pilot began in May 2023, and we will share more about this program as we learn and make adjustments. If your nonprofit is in need of new board members, please complete this form.
A key part of this program will focus on providing adequate training for potential board members and for the nonprofit leaders (staff and board members) who are working with new board members. Our goal is to create a pipeline of individuals who are prepared for board service and matched with nonprofit organizations that are ready to leverage and appreciate their talents, creating mutually beneficial relationships. Stay tuned for more!
