Allison Rickels, FFE President and FarmHouse Foundation CEO, says, “The Nonprofit Academy membership is worth your investment for many reasons. With over 100 tools, trainings and webinars, I’ve found such value in having such robust resources at my fingertips 24/7. Plus, the monthly live trainings, coaching calls and Facebook page with nonprofit peers offers a real look into today’s fundraising challenges and opportunities. Many times, I find new, out of the box ideas and learning lessons each time I participate or log-in to the Academy’s Vault. I’m grateful to Marc and his team for offering this greatly discounted membership opportunity to our FFE members and hope to see many of your organizations as members!”

On Thursday, March 14, Marc Pitman, Executive Director of the NPA and former keynote at FFE’s Seminar and Summit, will host a webinar as part of the FFE Continuing Education Webinar Series. The presentation will focus on the latest nonprofit leadership research which shows how specific leadership styles impact nonprofit outcomes, including three surprising aspects that significantly impact philanthropy. During the webinar, Marc will also provide details and next steps on this new benefit for FFE members.

“I’m excited for the FFE to grow its benefits and services for member foundations in collaboration with established experts in fundraising and nonprofit management,” said FFE Executive Director Ashley VanDewark. “This type of education coupled with access to advanced tools and resources is critical to our work in advancing sophistication of fraternal foundations. We’re grateful to The Nonprofit Academy for their generosity and support, and look forward to our continued work together.”
