The symposium is fittingly named for Marty Klitzner z”l, who blessed our community with expertise, kindness, and service as treasurer of Jewish Community Foundation, Jewish Federation of San Diego County, and Congregation Beth Israel. The symposium was inspired by Marty’s legacy of integrity and fiscal responsibility.
The Jewish Community Foundation is pleased to provide suggestions for, and access to, resources in the community. Here are three to get you started:
The Jewish Community Foundation has found BoardSource to be an excellent resource to all nonprofits. BoardSource is a nationally recognized organization that increases the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations by strengthening boards of directors through its acclaimed consulting practice, publications, tools, and membership program.
University of San Diego’s Institute for Nonprofit Education and Research educates nonprofit community leaders through academic excellence, applied learning, and research. ELI partner organizations may participate in USD’s annual Nonprofit Governance Symposium, which is partially supported by the Jewish Community Foundation.
