What People Had To Say

“The keynote identified the opportunities for nonprofits during Covid-19 that gave us hope that there is still funding out there from corporate business and the advantages of immigration and the use of innovation. Nonprofits will have to develop collaborative partnerships to gain success in both raising funds and obtaining more volunteers.”

Very useful and timely information. I’m appreciating the expertise of the presenters and their openness and willingness to share it with us.”

“Having attended for a number of years, I felt like the caliber of presenters was higher which may be attributed to bringing people in from other locales.Excellent offering of workshops for people new to the sector and those of us who have worked in the sector for some time. Great job!”
