“Nonprofits face many challenges including not enough staff, not enough budget, and not enough hours in the day. They need to be resilient in the face of crises such as Covid-19. These workshops are designed to help them make the most of what they do have, so they can spend more time fulfilling core mission,” said Jill Mendelson, Program Director, NonProfit Help Desk.

The NonProfit Help Desk offers training and dedicated professional staff support to nonprofits, giving them the resources to serve their communities more efficiently. All services are free or low cost. To find out more, go to: or email NPHD@JCCGCI.ORG.

These workshops are funded by generous allocations from NYC Councilmembers Laurie Cumbo, Chaim Deutsch, Farah Louis, and Mark Treyger. NPHD is a project of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island.
