CEN/Silicon Valley Community Foundation present:

Happy Healthy Nonprofits  

Self-Care for Nonprofit Professionals




Featuring Beth Kanter 


It’s time you start taking care of yourself! An organization’s work may be mission-based, but its people are mission critical.  If you are burned out, you can’t serve your stakeholders, or succeed in your career … or more importantly, deliver your nonprofit’s mission.

Nonprofits are operating in a climate of uncertainty and limited resources which requires resilience for high performance. The passion that we as nonprofit professionals feel for our work is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, that fervor helps us keep going in the face of difficult challenges. On the other hand, we can be so driven that we don’t stop to refuel, smell the proverbial roses, or even notice that we are experiencing symptoms of burnout.  Join us for a session with Beth Kanter and learn how to break this detrimental cycle. This interactive workshop is based on her new book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact Without Burnout.

Intended Audience: Nonprofit Executive Directors and emerging leaders


  • Take a self-assessment to determine burnout symptoms and opportunities to create self-care habits
  • Discuss and share tips and methods for self-care activities that go beyond physical health
  • Make a commitment to implementing one small self-care activity post workshop


When: April 28th, 2017 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Where: Silicon Valley Community Foundation - 2440 W El Camino Real #300, Mountain View, CA 94040

Cost: CEN Members $30 | Non-Members: $40 (Non-Member registration opens in March, space permitting)
