Nonprofit Events

SCCF is launching a series of nonprofit capacity building events. We'll be offering nonprofit leaders a chance to learn together about challenges like:

  • social media marketing

  • board development

  • ...and creating a fundraising plan

 

We'll also be hosting some less formal networking events for nonprofits to create collaborative relationships. Keep an eye out for updates on this page, in our nonprofit network newsletter and on our Facebook page!
