Nonprofit organizations are addressing the world's greatest social, environmental and economic challenges. In Pinellas County, the number one capacity-related concern for nonprofits, outside of funding, is organizational relationship and networks, according to a 2018 study conducted by the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg. Nonprofit Connect will be a monthly event designed to connect nonprofit organizations in the St. Petersburg community while driving innovation and sustainability through collaborative content sessions. As the Greenhouse continues to expand our offerings to meet the needs of our clients, we've heard a loud request for more programming specifically crafted for our nonprofit community. The purpose of the Nonprofit Connect: 1. Give nonprofit leaders a place to gather and learn. Provide topics for discussion as well as the opportunity for informal networking. 2. Encourage the inclusion of nonprofit organizations in the entrepreneurial ecosystem of St Petersburg. 3. Strengthen the nonprofit community by encouraging collaboration between organizations and with the government and for-profit sectors. On Friday morning, September 13, we will talk about Attracting Young Volunteers and Board Members. We’ve invited some of our area’s young leaders to get the conversation started. Together we will explore how to connect with future leaders for continued growth , diverse boards and a new generation of donors. We’ve heard from you that it is challenging to connect with the city’s emerging leaders . This is the opportunity to start those conversations. Come prepared for active networking! Please pass this invitation along to other nonprofit leaders. We want to build a full list of the organizations in the city so we can share this and other opportunities . Our guest facilitators for September will be Amanda Jacobsen and Lauren Ellis , Ph.D.
