Food for Thought: A New Program for Nonprofit Board Members

KENNETT SQUARE, PA — The Chester County Community Foundation and United Way of Southern Chester County recently announced a new Food for Thought program for current and prospective nonprofit board members, launching in January 2020.

Food for Thought sessions explore nonprofit board service in-depth and help board members optimize their board performance through practical, provocative and fun ‘food for thought’ gatherings.

Sessions are scheduled on the second Tuesdays at the Market at Liberty Place in Kennett: January 14, February 11, April 14 and June 9. Current and prospective nonprofit board members can attend a free morning session from 8-9:30 am (featuring bagels with board chats) or an evening session from 5-6:30 pm (featuring beer with board chats).

Topics initially include legal/fiduciary board responsibilities; fundraising; nonprofit organizational life cycles; and board self-assessments…and whatever else is a pressing issue for board members in attendance.

This series is a continuation of the Community Foundation’s programming to inspire and educate the community on legacy philanthropy and build a strong culture of nonprofits in Chester County.

“These Food For Thought programs will strengthen nonprofit board leadership in Chester County, while encouraging new individuals to get involved with their local nonprofits,” states Anthony Morris, Esq., President of the Chester County Community Foundation Board of Trustees. “We want to bring together passionate, committed and diverse individuals in our community to continue learning about philanthropy and nonprofit board leadership.”

Attendance to Food for Thought is free but registration is encouraged. Contact Stephenie Stevens at [email protected] or call (610) 696-0501 to make a reservation. The Market at Liberty Place is located at 148 W State St, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
