What is the Third Thursday Society?

Jackie Harder leads a session on Storytelling at Third Thursday.

The Third Thursday Society is a monthly networking and educational opportunity for nonprofit staff and board members sponsored by the Community Foundation of the New River Valley. Speakers provide programs on a variety of topics in nonprofit management including:

  • Fundraising
  • Event Planning
  • Financial Reporting
  • Grant-writing
  • Strategic Planning
  • Board Governance

Sessions are held on the third Thursday of the month at The Mockingbird Cafe, 4 W Main St #110 in Downtown Christiansburg. Networking begins at 7:30 am and the program runs from 8:00-9:00 am. These sessions are free and open to the public. Quarterly, we offer a more intensive half or full day training for a nominal charge. Upcoming sessions will be posted on our events page, please register and join us! If you would like to sign up and join our nonprofit list-serve we also send announcements about upcoming events to this group.

The Third Thursday Society is made possible with generous support from the Mockingbird Cafe, National Bank, and Union Bank & Trust.
