Why should our community prioritize nonprofit support?
Nonprofits have the specialized knowledge and passion to lead positive change in our community, but they need more capacity to fully engage in the type of work that can bring about lasting systemic change. One of the most important ways we can fuel nonprofits is by helping leaders develop skills to grow their organizations and deliver on their missions more effectively.
