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. Pre-COVID-19, these sessions were held in person. During the pandemic, we have shifted to zoom Nonprofit Listening Sessions. These sessions are held from 8:00-9:00 am. These sessions are free and open to the public. You can check our events page to see what topics will be covered, and to gain access to the zoom link. If you would like to sign up and join our nonprofit list-serve we also send announcements about upcoming events to this group. You can access past session recordings here.
