Hearing from expert speakers and networking with fellow nonprofit professionals at the Gianneschi Center’s Summer School is a great way to stay at the forefront of trends in the social responsibility sector.

The 11th annual Summer School for Nonprofits will be held this summer from Aug. 15 to 18, providing instruction for local organizations on how to thrive in the contemporary economy.

Mihaylo’s Gianneschi Center for Nonprofit Research, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, will host the annual Summer School for Nonprofits this August to equip local organizations to succeed in their mission to better the community. These organizations include nonprofits, social enterprises and socially-responsible for-profit companies, government agencies, and philanthropic foundations.

The Gianneschi 2016 Summer School for Nonprofits will feature instruction from more than 20 expert speakers on board development, regulatory issues, technology, fundraising, and volunteer recruitment and development. Attendees will expand their knowledge through one of three tracks: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Early-Bird Tuition is available through July 31. Individual tuition is $150, while up to four individuals in the same organization may attend for a combined rate of $300. Early-Bird Tuition includes free parking at the Fullerton Marriott  and a $10 Starbucks gift card. After July 31, registration increases to $175 for individuals and $350 for organizations, while parking will be $7 at the Marriott and $8 on-campus at the Eastside Parking Structure.

There will also be two free seminars, which are open free of charge, though registration is required. A Free Grant Seminar, hosted by the office of U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-Brea), discussing grant and proposal writing and federal programs for nonprofits, will be held on Aug. 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. at SGMH 1406. A Tax Seminar for Nonprofit and Exempt Organizations, sponsored by Vice Chair Diane Harkey of the California State Board of Equalization, will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 18 at SGMH 1502.
