When we were founded in 2013, the goal was to create an inclusive space where nonprofit professionals could connect and develop innovative ideas to solve issues in the community. Join us for a special evening where we will partake in delicious appetizers, libations, and fun while celebrating the progress we’ve made in our mission over the past 5 years! We will pause to celebrate this milestone and solicit your ideas for supporting future change over the next 5 years and beyond.
