Get ready for the 36th Annual VITAL Quiz Bowl coming up April 15-18, 2019!
This popular community event is the primary fundraiser for the library’s adult literacy program VITAL (Volunteers in Tutoring Adult Learners).  VITAL offers a safe, respectful learning environment for adults who want to improve their reading, writing, math, or English language skills. Without these essential literacy skills, these members of our community are struggling to find jobs, stay healthy, and support their families. 

The Quiz Bowl is a fun, fast-paced trivia competition. It takes only four members to form a Quiz Bowl team and join the fun! Teams compete in single elimination rounds. All teams compete on Monday or Tuesday, April 15-16, with winners of these initial rounds playing each other on Wednesday. The winning teams from Wednesday go on to play in Thursday’s final rounds. The entire event is televised, live on CATS-Channel 3.
The minimum donation is $180 (team entry fee.) Support adult literacy. Register your team or make a donation by visiting VITAL Quiz Bowl 2019

Free Webinar: Overlooked Benefits of Outsourcing Nonprofit Accounting
Wednesday, March 27th, 2019
11:30 am - 1:00 pm ET

Has your organization ever looked at outsourcing all or a portion of its accounting?  If not, it is because you’re not sure how the organization would benefit from this decision.  Since it is not a common practice for nonprofits to outsource its accounting, we will discuss the process and discuss the overlooked benefits of outsourcing your Nonprofit Accounting. In the nonprofit community, outsourcing typically means long-term delegation of key operation to outside experts. 

The accompanying expectation is improvement of the quality, strengthening effectiveness, and lowering or controlling costs. A key difference in the nonprofit sector is not only controlling costs, but becoming a more effective organization. Outsourcing accounting provides nonprofit organizations with a team of experts who have multiple client experiences which benefits its clients and the nonprofit organization’s it serves. We will review six overlooked, and sometimes unknown, benefits of outsourcing nonprofit accounting.  To Register: Click Here!
