Podcasts For Nonprofit Organizations: Personal Development for Leaders, Board Members, Staff and Volunteers

Posted Jan 14 2009 8:50pm

There are some terrific podcasts available on the subject of nonprofit organizations. They cover topics including:

  • Starting a nonprofit organization
  • Fundraising
  • Leading and managing
  • Using technology effectively

Listening to informative podcasts is a great way to learn.

Ipod2_1 You can listen to podcasts on your computer or with a portable mp3 player when you are away from your home or office.

I have turned my car into a classroom! Rather than listening to the radio, I listen to podcasts I have downloaded to my mp3 player. There are special accessories that allow you to play your mp3 player through your car radio.

Consider listening to the podcasts described below. They are the best I have found. I continue to learn from them and I know you will as well.
