For the first four months of the year, Whitefish Community Foundation hosted free breakfast training sessions to help nonprofit organizations improve their internal operations and governance. Each workshop covered specific topics and included exercises for the attending organizations to take back to implement with their board of directors. The end result of the free training, is to help each nonprofit achieve better reporting standards, improved governance, and realize a more engaged board of directors. Community Foundation staff teach each of the workshops and offer real experience and practical application. Support for this program came from the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation.
