Center for Nonprofit Stewardship receives grant from Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation for nonprofit workshops in Klamath County

The Center for Nonprofit Stewardship (CNS) has been awarded a $4,000 grant from Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation (CCUIF) to build stronger nonprofits in Klamath County with training workshops, advice, and other support.

CNS’s Nonprofit Learning Series in Klamath Falls will include three half-day workshops held every other month from July to November. Each half-day workshop will consist of three hours of curriculum on board governance, fundraising, or finance and budgeting. The workshops will include speakers from CNS’s expert staff as well as other practitioners and resource providers.

Attendees will have the option of purchasing a three-workshop pass for $99 or a one-workshop ticket for $45. CNS is able to offer these defrayed rates thanks to funders like the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation.

CNS attended an awards ceremony held in Canyonville, Oregon on January 14, 2020 to receive the grant. CCUIF awarded a total of $474,650 to seventy charities in Southwestern Oregon during this funding cycle.

Foundation Executive Director Carma Mornarich said “with its emphasis upon meeting the basic needs of people, strengthening family, and assuring educational opportunity the CCUIF, one grant at a time, improves life in southwestern Oregon and beyond.”

Mornarich said the mission of the foundation is to offer assistance in youth education, strengthen youth and family, provide for positive youth development, and add to the quality of live for people in the region.

2019 Wreaths Across America Ceremony

Please join us at Dorris City Hall on December 14th at 10 am for the 2nd Annual Wreaths Across America Ceremony.

We will be honoring and remembering the veterans that are laid to rest in Lakeview Cemetery in Macdoel, CA. We have a full program with the honor guard, special readings, slideshow, and light refreshments afterwards. It is a moving remembrance of the not only the veterans that are resting within the confines of Lakeview Cemetery, but a tribute to the sacrifice veterans from all over our nation have made in order to protect our freedoms and liberties! We are a site location of the national organization of Wreaths Across America. We are very honored to be able to carry out the laying of Christmas wreaths at our local cemetery just like they do in Arlington National Cemetery every December! We understand we have Veterans Day in the fall and Memorial Day in the spring, but our service members sacrifice their time and safety every single day of the year to preserve our freedoms.

In many homes, there is an empty seat for one who is serving or one who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. There is no better time to express our appreciation than during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
