Capacity Building Event

Attaining Peak Performance: Helping NH Nonprofits Thrive!

Presented by: Primerica

New Hampshire’s non-profits play a critical role in the health and wellbeing of our communities. Yet while they work to meet their missions and the needs of those they serve, there are a host of administrative and other functions that often get put to the side. To help agencies of all sizes prosper and plan for a bright future, we’ve created a team of talented strategic partners with deep expertise in areas critical to the success of any business. 

From leadership education to strategic planning to helping employees develop a financial action plan, our experts can help your organization take its next leap forward. Our programs are tailored to meet your specific needs and include group and one on one training.

Core programs and services include:

  • financial planning and management,
  • leadership development and training,
  • business planning and expansion,
  • capacity building,
  • tax planning,
  • insurance,
  • human resources,
  • strategic planning and organizational development, and
  • employee training.

This series will be held from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on the first Tuesday of every month, starting on March 3. The sessions will be held at 735 Chestnut Street in Manchester and space is limited to 30 participants.
