“The LANO Community Leaders program is a resource for community minded advocates serving or interested in serving on nonprofit boards.  Community Leaders are trained in board governance, financial management and fundraising – applying best practice to their roles as board members.  Our 2015 class worked diligently to promote the YWCA program and to raise money for a significant program in the Baton Rouge area,” said Kelly Pepper, President of LANO.

 

The Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations (LANO) is a member based nonprofit organization who strives to be the go-to source for Louisiana’s nonprofit organizations by providing high quality information, tools, resources and member benefits that deepen the impact of Louisiana nonprofits.
