Organizational Effectiveness Resource Center

The Community Foundation desires to play an active role in providing our nonprofit community with leadership development and continuous improvement programs through our innovative Organizational Effectiveness Resource Center (OERC). Our goal is to elevate a whole community of nonprofit organizations into well-managed, collaborative agencies by providing resources and development opportunities to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations, thus helping them realize – and sustain – their missions.
