A workshop addressing management of nonprofit organizations will be held Tuesday, June 23 at Hindman Settlement School in Hindman.

The Kentucky Nonprofit Leadership Initiative will host "Nonprofit Management 101," a workshop aimed at providing management education in the areas of board governance, fundraising, bookkeeping and volunteer management to small, grassroots 501 (c) (3) organizations. The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT.

"This workshop is an ideal learning environment for those starting a nonprofit organization or for small grassroots organizations that need to strengthen their capacity, including faith-based and community organizations," said Danielle Clore, director of the Nonprofit Leadership Initiative. "The event will also provide leaders with a great networking opportunity."

The Appalachian Regional Commission is funding the workshop and scholarships for Knott County residents through a Brushy Fork Institute Flex-E-Grant.
