Successful non-profit leaders understand the importance of growing their leadership skills and staying up to date with the latest charity news. But finding the time to do so can be a challenge. Here are three websites that will make it easier for you to stay informed.

CanadaHelps: Helping charities and their leaders become better online fundraisers

CanadaHelps specializes in supporting Canadian charities setting up their online fundraising programs. But it offers more than just an online fundraising platform. Through its Charity Life blog, it offers non-profit leaders a place for inspiration and information about online fundraising and running a successful charity.

On the CanadaHelps website, you can also find additional resources, such as recordings of webinars as well as educational materials on the different online fundraising tools.

Imagine Canada: Strengthening the charitable sector for a stronger Canada

Imagine Canada’s blog is the go-to place for non-profit leaders to find information on key debates and challenges in the sector, as well as tips on how to make your organization stronger.

The Resources and tools section on the website offers additional resources on building your organization’s capacity. Resources available include Grant Connect, which gives you information on thousands of funders and also offers management tools to track your data, and Research and Facts, where you find different downloadable reports about Canada’s charitable and non-profit sector.

Charity Village: Bringing you more than just the latest jobs

While it’s well known for listing the latest job and volunteer opportunities, Charity Village is also a great place to explore various aspects of non-profit leadership. The knowledge centre is an excellent resource for non-profit leaders, offering free resources, reports, and articles on a broad range of non-profit related topics.

Charity Village also offers monthly free webinars on different topics relevant to professionals working in the non-profit sector. For example, its most recent webinar was on strategic planning. It also offers eLearning courses with the option of earning a completion certificate.
