Building Nonprofit Boards

TLC - Leslie & Bret 2015-10-06Maintaining a strong board of directors is a challenging but crucial piece of good nonprofit management. JRP launched The Leadership Connection (TLC) in Oct. 2015, to train potential board members and place them on local boards. JRP volunteer Bret Schaefer, who has worked in finance and operations for both for-profit and nonprofit businesses, has recently joined the board of Friends in Deed ( as a result of TLC! Friends in Deed offers a variety of services to people in need, ranging from a food pantry to Pasadena’s Bad Weather Shelter. Friends in Deed’s board saw a huge increase in demand for their services during the recession while seeing income decline. Their hard work kept FID in business through those difficult years and helped hundred of Pasadeneans who needed an extra hand. They continue to serve many hungry and homeless clients, a service which Bret is excited to help with.
