Provide Skills-Based Learning

Providing opportunities for skill-based learning is a core service of Forefront. Forefront workshops are offered at a discount to our Members.

Vision: Nonprofits, grantmakers, and advisors have the necessary skills and understanding to do their best work.

Recent results: Last year, we provided over 50 skill-building workshops for charitable organizations to build their capacity in evaluation, proposal writing, individual giving, advocacy, and prospect research. We also partnered with the Chicago Police Department, ComEd, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas, and other organizations to provide technical and skill-building workshops to their grantees and the communities they serve. In Central Illinois, we provided educational and information resources to 350 nonprofit professionals through Good Works CONNECT.

Work in progress: This year, we will provide 70 educational workshops to charitable organizations in key skill areas. We also continue to partner with other organizations to provide technical and skill-building workshops, as well as move forward with our programming through Good Works CONNECT in Central Illinois.
