Through a generous grant from Crown Family Philanthropies, and additional support from Pierce Family Philanthropies, Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW) will host its third annual Board Boot Camp. The program will include a comprehensive, interactive two-and-a-half day training where participants will gain skills in topics such as board roles and responsibilities, understanding nonprofit financials, and fundraising basics. There will also be a panel discussion where women currently serving on boards and CFW grantee organizations will share their experiences, as well as a reception where participants can meet nonprofits in need of board members and find a good fit for their new skills.

Board Boot Camp is designed for individuals with no prior nonprofit board experience.
