Event Details

PhilanthroFest and Catalyst Miami
Non-Profit Community Engagement Institute 

PhilanthroFest is collaborating with Catalyst Miami to host the first in our ongoing series of Non-Profit Community Engagement Institutes on February 8 at the Miami Science Museum. The focus of these institutes is to provide non-profit organizations of all sizes with both online and offline skills to reach out and connect with residents of their community to better promote their mission and enhance their organization.

The institute is an afternoon affair with several workshop sessions. Each workshop is 45 minutes long. A keynote presentation by Dave Lorenzo jump starts the day and we wrap up with time for networking and socializing with other non-profit executives.
