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 Atlantic Union Bank.
