On June 15, 2021, we hosted our fourth Annual Nonprofit Summit and spent the day with 150+ local nonprofit partners and community leaders!
The day's programming was aimed at strengthening the nonprofit sector and providing meaningful connections as we came together to learn how to navigate new challenges and learn from experts, and each other, on how best to move forward. We explored the impact that the pandemic had on the nonprofit sector, highlighted how many nonprofits chose to adapt to the new environment, and closed with actionable steps on how to move forward. Every segment featured honest dialogue that broke down stigma and encouraged honest conversation.
This exciting Summit couldn't have been possible without our esteemed list of community leaders:
Josh Jacobson - Next Stage

Even though this year was virtual we built in intentional networking, performances, and interactive technology to make it feel as personal as possible.
