The issue: United Way instructional forums
Our view: Valuable resource for agencies
Familiar advice says you can give a man to fish and he will have a meal, but if you teach a man to fish he always will have food. United Way of Central Kentucky is teaching local organizations how to teach fishing.
Beginning April 12, the first of four instructional forums will be held to provide tools and information to nonprofit agencies in a four-county area. These informational seminars are open to any non-profit organization interested in learning more about strategic planning, grant writing and more.
United Way of Central Kentucky will be working with government allocated Vistas as part of the Corporation of National and Community Service to conduct the training for the good of all in our region. Learning to operate a nonprofit in a more effective way creates a win-win of improved service. As the organizations and agencies sharpen their skills, they will be able to accomplish even more to raise conditions and improve quality of life.
The seminars are offered at no cost except the time invested to attend. It would seem difficult to pass up an opportunity like offered to agencies in Hardin, LaRue, Meade or Grayson counties. Benevolent organizations typically want to improve and better serve their consumers.
Kudos to the United Way of Central Kentucky for both recognizing a need and taking the lead to make this endeavor a reality.
Our communities will benefit if residents get involved and participate in the program. To let this forum take place with anything but at-capacity attendance would be a lost opportunity.
