United Way of Denton County seeks to strengthen nonprofits

In an effort to equip individuals in Denton County to strengthen the nonprofits they serve, the United Way of Denton County is accepting applications for the 2018 Project Blueprint class.

Created in 2009, Project Blueprint is a series of classes designed to train potential nonprofit board members in Denton County, according to a United Way news release.
