Resources are tight. You want to build awareness of risk management within your organization, but you don’t have a lot of room in the budget right now. Or you have begun risk management, but you want to energize your staff or board. There is no better way to do that than with our webinar series.

Risk Alternative’s webinars have been featured by Nonprofit Quarterly, the Foundation Financial Officers’ Group, CompassPoint, The Forbes Funds, and numerous other leading organizations. We have three different series to choose from.

Volunteer Risk Management

Almost every nonprofit uses volunteers to perform some services. If you do, you put your mission at risk.

  • How do you train those volunteers?
  • How do you supervise them?
  • What do you do if things go wrong?

In this series of five (5) 45-minute webinars (plus bonus materials), you will learn how to build an effective volunteer management system.

About that BONUS:

In addition to the webinars, your participating employees will be invited to at least one video-conference “office hours” session at which they will be able to raise specific questions about your particular volunteer risks and get practical advice from Risk Alternatives.

Lean Risk Management

If you want to build an effective risk management process, you should learn from our Lean Risk Management webinars.

These thirteen (13) 45-minute webinars (plus bonus office hours, diagnostic survey, and strategy session) provide a practical approach to build risk management capacity in your organization.

About those BONUSES:

This webinar series includes three bonus items!


  1. Your nonprofit performs an online survey that identifies strengths and weaknesses within your organization.
  2. Then, up to four of your staff attend a video-conference strategy session with Risk Alternatives, where we give you detailed advice about practical steps you can take immediately to improve your organization.
  3. Finally, participating employees will be invited to at least two “office hour” video-conference sessions during the webinar series, where Risk Alternatives staff will field questions and provide answers to your toughest risk management challenges.

Becoming a Risk Management Champion

  • See something, say something.
  • What can you do with a risk?
