Academy would foster nonprofit excellence

Nonprofit volunteers, board members and staffers can visit the Central Virginia Academy for Nonprofit Excellence on Facebook or go directly to www.surveymonkey.com/s/non profit_excellence_needs_survey to provide input.
The academy, which has been supported by Central Virginia Community College, grew out of a July 28 summer workshop of the Council of United Way Agencies. It will offer speakers, classes and course on topics ranging from starting a nonprofit, state and federal registration laws, tax and insurance issues, marketing, budgeting, fundraising, recruiting and more.
