You can begin to increase your proofreading accuracy and speed by practicing the skills of Perfectly Practical Proofreading.

Plus, you’ll learn how to tactfully deal with co-workers or bosses when they make mistakes or disagree with you on the rules of style. Course fee includes workbook by Gloria Thomas of Wizard Workforce Development.

Effective Communication Skills Communication is the most important way to be “heard” and understood in any relationship whether personaly or professionaly.

SPRING 2007

Nonprofit Boards Development Series Board/CEO Awareness: The Value of Outcome Measures The Institute on Philanthropy strives to strengthen the community and inspire charitable giving by educating professionals, volunteers and donors about the practices and purposes of nonprofit fundraising and development. Our aim: Helping You Help Others Our classes are designed with fund raising and development professionals in mind, but much of the information can be applied to religious, political, and foundation settings. NEW! Nonprofit Boards Development Series is a special group of classes for board members or professionals who manage or work with boards. NEW! Two new professional certificate options are now available.

To register for IOP classes, please fax your registration form to (804) 484-1474.

Oftentimes, board and staff members of nonprofit organizations see funder requests for outcome measures as intrusive and burdensome because there is a perception that defining appropriate measures is difficult (if not impossible) and onerous to track. This course will show how defining appropriate measures need not be the difficult task some perceive and how tracking outcome measures can be blended into normal operations. It will also show the benefit of providing this information in organizational literature – both educational and funding related Date: Tuesday, Jan. 9 Time: 6–8 p.m. CRN: 80182 Fee: $45 CEUs: 0.2 Instructor: Gail T. Merridew, MPA, NMC; Nonprofit Management Solutions, LLC

Stable and Predictable or Fresh Thinking–Transition Planning for Boards A long standing board member can be very knowledgeable and comforting – or she can become complacent. A new board member can bring fresh ideas – or envelope-pushing ones that are hard to manage. What does your nonprofit need and how do you manage that transition? Why does it matter so much to have the right board profile for your organization. Most difficult: How do you get from where you are to where you need to be? This workshop will explore those

questions, but be advised that this is a tough issue to tackle – and you’re not alone in needing to do it. Date: Thursday, Feb. 8 Time: 6–8 p.m. CRN: 80446 Fee: $45 CEUs: 0.2 Instructor: Katherine Whitney, Director Warren, Whitney & Sherwood

How to Effectively Recruit & Retain Board Members Recruiting and retaining effective board members may be one of the most important things you do in the life of your organization. However, experience is that all too often recruitment is too much a last-minute task accomplished with too little planning. Therefore, we will begin our time together in discussion related to the importance of taking the time, getting organized, and using your best imagination and contacts to put together a top-notch, diverse, and enthused group of potential board members. We will review the most effective ways to enlist these potential board members. And finally, once you have recruited enthusiastic new members, we will focus on how to best orient, train, and engage them in your organization’s work. Following this process will result in board members’ finding meaningful value to their contributions, and it will allow you to maximize the results for your organization.

INSTITUTE ON PHILANTHROPY

Fundraising and Development Introduction to Grantsmanship Successful grantsmanship is more than grants writing -- it’s a comprehensive process of defining needs in a compelling way; determining best type of funding possible and strategies; researching and connecting with appropriate sources; writing and packaging the competitive, winning proposals; and managing grants and grantors after the award or the decline -while educating and engaging better your boss and your board. In this six-hour workshop you will learn the fundamentals, organization and management strategies, grant trends and solutions, and new resources that position your organization for greater grantsmanship success.

Growing With Gift Annuities Is your charity, church or nonprofit organization growing as much as you would like? Is there room for more funds? This course will explore the basics of charitable gift annuities and how your organization can benefit from this popular form of giving, which also gives money back to donors. We will make gift annuities simple, but also look at some sophisticated ways of offering them to donors. Designed for charities and for donors, we will examine them from a charity’s point of view, including the income and capital gains tax benefits as well as the payments to the donor. The course is designed for those who are new to fundraising, want to grow their

fundraising, or for individuals who want to give more wisely. No financial experience is necessary. (Note any donors interested in gift annuities should be over the age of 60.) Date: Wednesday, Feb. 14 Time: 8:30–11:30 a.m. CRN: 80447 Fee: $75 CEUs: 0.3 Instructor: Wayne Olson, Trust Company of Virginia

Engaging Volunteers in Fundraising Success Successful development requires us to engage the skills and passions of both volunteers and staff. Development professionals, executive directors, and volunteer leaders will learn how to identify, recruit, train and empower volunteer fundraisers. Nancy Trego, Senior Vice President for Financial Development at the YMCA of Greater Richmond, will lead a discussion of the theory and practice of working with volunteers. She will also present a variety of tools that can be adapted in different non-profit settings. The focus is on using best practices when time and staff support are short. A panel of successful volunteer leaders will also join us for Q & A’s and will be avail to answer questions.

Online Fundraising Basics Your website is being used to evaluate your organization. Period. With roughly 95% of nonprofit organizations working with annual budgets of less than $5 million, a $50,000 website seems out of the question. Does that mean that a successful web site is not possible for the majority of nonprofits? Absolutely not.

There are some basic elements that can be incorporated into any nonprofit website. In this class we will identify these elements and explore some lowcost alternative solutions. This class will benefit fundraisers, communications managers or executive directors. Dates: Tuesdays, March 6 & 13 Time: 9 a.m.–noon CRN: 80692 Fee: $150 Instructor: Heather Fignar, MPA, Managing Partner, NPAdvisors.com

Planned Giving for the 21st Century – Tip of the Iceberg Into the foreseeable future, traditional fundraising will continue to provide the financial foundation that keeps the lights on and the water hot. Looming on the horizon, however, are a myriad of demographic, social, and financial factors that point to a fundraising harvest for those non-profits that act now to bolster their bequest awareness and planned giving efforts. This course offers a “view from the trenches” of a successful school planned giving program that consistently enjoys $1-3 million every year in deferred giving activity. How does pursuing planned gifts differ from raising outright/capital gifts? How can deferred gifts help now? How does a small shop raise these gifts without a dedicated planned giving officer? What must a governing board do to promote success? Our study will also provide a working knowledge of each of the eight most common gifts in this area, including their main tax features.

Scholarship funds are available to those who qualify. See our web site for an application.

Kenneth Clark’s 13-part series “Civilisation: A Personal View”, produced by British Broadcasting Corporation’s Channel 2 (BBC-2) in 1969 and released in the United States in 1970 on public television, remains a milestone in the history of arts television, the Public Broadcasting System, and the explication of high culture to interested laypeople. The series offers an extended definition of the essential qualities of Western civilization through an examination of its chief monuments and important locations.

OVERLORD–The Allied Invasion of Normandy

The Cold War in Hindsight

Enchanted Island– Silcily! Lecture and Dinner

NEW! On June 6, 1944, the greatest military force ever assembled assaulted enemyheld France. This course, presented by the Army’s former Chief of Military History, will examine the planning, execution, and significance of the Normandy Invasion that led to the liberation of France and then the defeat of Nazi Germany. Classroom discussions will be strongly reinforced by a Saturday bus trip to the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA, at the conclusion of the course.

NEW! Fifteen years after the demise of the Soviet Union, we find ourselves with sufficient hindsight to gain a more meaningful understanding of the events which are collectively known as the Cold War. Rather than approaching the Cold War from the traditional perspective of the American crusade against an “evil Empire”, this course will focus on the Cold War as a series of interlocking maneuvers from the perspectives of BOTH the United States and Soviet Union. Students will begin by examining the philsophical foundations of the Cold War, focusing on the manifestation of Marxism-Leninism in the Soviet Union. Students will consider the events of the Cold War from both perspectives, analyze changes in foreign policy, and even postulate on each party’s culpability. Finally, students will consider the shift in diplomatic relations following the Cuban Missile Crisis and conclude with an analysis of the Soviet Union’s demise in 1991.

NEW! The largest island in the Mediterranean and about the size of Maryland, it has a 5,000 year history, climate and culture that have attracted attention for centuries. Join us as we visit Sicily, the “Enchanted Island”. We’ll begin the evening with an authentic ethnic dinner. Based on authentic Sicilian recipes, we’ll try several dishes which will intrigue and tantalize the palate. With strains of Sicilian music, a blend of east and west in the background, it will feel like going abroad - for less than the cost of a passport! Then it’s on to the island itself. We’ll be led by award-winning historian Ken Ostrand. A frequent visitor to the island, he’ll introduce us to a land of charm and history. Going off the usual track and using PowerPoint slides, we’ll visit the quarry used by Greeks to build their magnificent temples, examine an enigmatic Roman villa, gaze at mosaics covering an entire catherdral’s insides, and climb a mountain the Arabs called the “mountain of mountains”. Join us for this evening of food and fun!

NEW! The first blockbuster exhibition of the 21st century and drawing record crowds in America, the spectacular King Tut exhibit is coming to Philadelphia - and we have secured tickets to see it! Arguably the greatest archaeological discovery ever, the rarely-seen artifacts of the Boy King’s tomb are again touring the U.S. after a gap of nearly 30 years–and Philadelphia is the closest they come to Richmond. Beautifully crafted of gold and precious stones, the many one-of-a-kind artifacts intrigue, dazzle, and mystify. To help us make the most of our visit, we’ll be led by college professor and archaeologist Ken Ostrand. A frequent visitor to Egypt and the first American to CT-Scan an Egyptian Mummy, Dr. Ostrand will give us a presentation on the bus, setting the background and timeframe for Tutankhamon. He’ll discuss various objects from the exhibit, suggesting what to look for, and how to approach the exhibition, and will answer questions.

Over 120 pots are on display including finely-detailed Italian terracotta, a wood and cast-iron French tree tub, an English horticultureware rhubarb forcer, traditional regional American pots, and the latest in plastic orchid pots and ornamental urns.

Theirs is a visual, tactile, fragrant language… With every season, its characters form and re-form in an intricate interplay of colors, textures, and shapes. Our role is to weave a fresh plot with each garden we design. Utilizing classic principles handed down by centuries of gardeners, we create a theme for each garden. To communicate drama. Or, perhaps whimsy. Clear twists that pique the imagination.”

“One of America's three most under-rated destinations!” Five thousand years of history and more than a dozen major cultures, amazing landscapes and towns, gifted guides, food and hotels. Then there’s ancient Ephesus and Istanbul, the rarely-visited Hittite lands and our personal home visits. Need we say more?

Inside the pyramids...Tut’s tomb...Abu Simbel...the Nile Cruise...and many of the more unusual sites and special archaeological visits the others don't even think of including. Don't miss the trip of a lifetime for a matter of a few hundred dollars. The best Egyptian trip available, if you really want to see Egypt!

THE “DEEP” AMAZON...AND RIO

ADVANCED EGYPT: ASWAN TO KHARTOUM

November 9–18, 2007 Cost: TBA

January 27-February 9, 2008 Cost: TBA

Our last visit to this rapidlyvanishing unique destination! We'll go far beyond civilization to the Amazon before it's cut down and civilized--aboard a small boat with all amenities (including AC!) Then three days to Rio de Janiero, one of the world's most beautiful cities! Nearly filled--don't delay!

Our 3rd Advanced trip and we're again going where few have gone before! Starting with Egypt's most beautiful site, we'll go south of the border by boat and 4-wheel vehicle through the ancient Nubia...and visit the confluence of the Blue and White Niles! Only 5 spaces remain!

Cost: TBA

One of our most-popular trips, this has all those sites you remember from history! Athens, Delphi and Olympia: they're all here along with a few off-thebeaten destinations that keep our travelers coming back for more! Our last trip here–join us for Greek Odyssey 07! 56

TURKEY: Land of a Hundred Faces
