From the Omega press release:

RHINEBECK, NY – Omega, a nonprofit educational organization, today announced it will award 29 nonprofit peers with working retreat grants in 2018. Nonprofit Retreats at Omega is a program that has been running for 14 years, and has served more than 350 nonprofits and 5,000 dedicated people. Two summits will take place on Omega’s campus in Rhinebeck, New York. The Strengthening Communities Summit (May 28-30) will bring together nonprofits that prioritize a range of social, economic, or environmental issues. The Women Serving Women Summit (May 30-June 1), hosted by the Omega Women’s Leadership Center, will focus on supporting organizations that serve the needs and interests of women. 

“As a nonprofit organization, we know firsthand the great challenge and benefit of carving out time for strategic planning, and reflection,” said Carla Goldstein, chief external affairs officer at Omega. “We are pleased to be able to provide working retreat space for change leaders to take a moment away from the demands of their daily work so they can focus on big picture planning.” 

“Omega’s Nonprofit Retreats offer participating organizations the opportunity to strengthen their commitment and capacity to pursue their mission by providing a unique environment that encourages and supports teamwork, organizational growth, and connectivity,” said Doug Sauer, chief executive officer of the New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON), Omega’s partner in the program. 

The participation of Mid-Hudson Valley region nonprofits is funded in part by a significant grant from the Dyson Foundation.
