The Arizona Nonprofit Academy, founded last year, is a central resource in developing a vibrant philanthropic base of support while teaching organizations to perform at their highest level in order to achieve their service missions.

Workshops focus on specific topics such as writing a press release, developing a board of directors and organizing charity events. The academy also has scheduled workshops that address the process of cultivating donors, selling naming rights and reading financial reports. The calendar includes panel discussions from some of the Valley’s largest donors and corporate givers.

Workshops are ongoing through Dec. 31. Classes range in price from $39 to $49 and run about two hours in length. Coming up on Tuesday, Aug. 5, the academy presents “What Sponsors Want,” from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Blue Cross & Blue Shield, 8220 N. 23rd Ave., #2. Understanding what sponsors are looking for is key to developing long-term relationships. Get the inside view to ROI, sponsorship exposure and partnership values. Doors open at 9 a.m. Cost is $39, plus a $3.14 online registration fee.
