Office of Government and Community Affairs Highlights Excellence in Nonprofit Management Series

The Columbia University Office of Government and Community Affairs recently featured the Excellence in Nonprofit Management Series, a collaboration between SPS and the West Harlem Development Corporation (WHDC).

Open to WHDC grantees, the series began last summer with a workshop on board governance and strategic planning and has also featured an expansive workshop on strategic communication.

SPS and the WHDC work together to plan and implement all aspects of the workshops, including the choice of presenters. The partnership allows for the WHDC to further its efforts to provide technical assistance to its nonprofit grantees and small businesses in the community.

Over the last six years, the WHDC has made grants to 162 nonprofit organizations, giving them a broad base of outreach into the community. The grantees provide services in education, arts and culture, affordable housing, historical preservation, the environment, community facilities, workforce development, and economic development.
