Opportunities for Networking & Community Connection

Although we are not gathering in person this year, nonprofit and education communities are still craving the opportunity to connect – to share solutions, pain points, team and life updates. So we’ve created a digital forum, Community Connection Circles, for our trailblazers to reunite and network in 1:few groups for a 60-90 min engaging conversation.  Space is limited, so register today to secure your spot!
