Do not miss these 990 trainings from the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. They are all over the state, please forward them to your contacts statewide. They are presented by Eve Borenstein who is a fount of 990 knowledge. She makes this exciting topic even better with sample 990s that are as instructional as they are funny. These half day or longer trainings provide a great amount of detail and will really help your organization use the form 990 that meets both compliance needs and tells the public about the good work your nonprofit does.
In the past few weeks I have presented to people in Alexandria, Fergus Falls, Marshall, and Willmar. I will also be in St. Cloud on November 25th. These sessions have been generously hosted by the Bremer Bank nonprofit resource specialists. If you will be in St. Cloud on November 25th, contact Kathy Grochow for details about a two hour 990 training. Here are the details:
