It’s Service Week at Omega Institute PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 02 June 2010 01:16

More than 30 nonprofits are attending Omega Institute’s sixth annual Service Week from May 31st to June 4th.  Participating organizations are offered an opportunity to attend two-day, two-night organizational retreats that include free room and board, a private meeting space, and use of all the facilities at Omega’s 195 acre-Rhinebeck campus.


“Reduced resources make nonprofit organizations more vulnerable and less able to dedicate time to planning ahead and evaluating organizational health. Omega is proud to be able to offer a helping hand to our nonprofit peers, and to reinforce this important community safety net,” said Carla Goldstein, director of external affairs and the Women’s Institute at Omega.


Grant recipients can tailor their time to their needs, using it for anything from strategic planning to team-building activities. Some of the grantee organizations are bringing representatives from additional nonprofit organizations, allowing the program to broaden its reach. All are offered an optional consultation with Omega’s partner, the New York Council of Nonprofits, at an on-site Nonprofit Wellness Clinic.


“Now more than ever, nonprofits must think seriously about viability and make decisions about their future and direction that may not have been considered before,” said Doug Sauer, chief executive officer of the New York Council of Nonprofits.  “Omega’s Service Week offers a unique opportunity in a safe, nurturing environment, for organizations to step back, breathe, and get a ‘check up’ with one of our expert staff.”
