YWCA of Princeton and a consultant to nonprofits for 20 years, is

27, from 5 to 9:15 p.m. at the Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson

workshops. The choices include using the Internet for your non-profit

organization, managing conflict, asking for money, public speaking,

building an active board, fundraising, accessing foundations and


for funding, nuts and bolts of a press release, marketing your image,

motivating volunteers, and collaborative projects. Those who register

early get first priority on their choices. Call 609-924-8652 for a
