Event description
Growing Capacity: From Grassroots to Legacy Institutions

About this Event

Community-based organizations are champions and problem solvers for our communities. They bridge gaps, tackle big issues and meet people where they are; all while juggling the challenges of fundraising, talent recruitment and retention, board engagement and long-term impact. Candid, UBF and Case Western Reserve University proudly present a half-day program designed to help Black-led and minority operated nonprofits build capacity. The day starts with an honest and insightful panel discussion on the challenges of growing from a grassroots to a legacy organization. Additionally, community leaders can participate in two professional development sessions to learn from experts in the nonprofit field. Lunch will be accompanied by a keynote speaker and Q and A. This event is free, but all attendees must RSVP, register today!
