Our four main business lines - Consulting Services, Search Services, Learning & Leadership, and Volunteer Services - all need a compelling program achievement "story" to help reach their audiences.
We have so many powerful stories that haven't been shared yet with our communities. People respond to stories best, and telling our organizational stories will allow us to reach new people and demonstrate our impact as a nearly 60-year-old organization.
We advance nonprofits and volunteerism by strengthening leadership, encouraging innovation and empowering individuals in our community.
Since 1964, the national award-winning Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) has advanced nonprofits and volunteerism by strengthening leadership, encouraging innovation, and empowering individuals throughout the Bay Area. Passion alone isn't enough when it comes to creating strong nonprofits. That's why we work with aspiring and established leaders every day to help them build the skills and connections that can take their impact to the next level. CVNL offers comprehensive programs including training, executive search, customized consulting solutions, and volunteer opportunities and programs for nonprofits, individuals, families, groups, and businesses. Our Heart of Marin(tm) and Heart of Napa(tm) events support nonprofits of every size and mission through recognition and cash awards. CVNL provides disaster preparedness training and serves as an Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC), overseeing spontaneous volunteers and donations for Napa and Marin Counties in the aftermath of a disaster. We believe that with confident and prepared leaders, our nonprofits will be better equipped to create healthy, happy communities.
