Upcoming Events

Regional Resources and Partnership Building Workshops

CRC will host online regional workshops to connect nonprofits, government agencies, and funders to provide links to resources, share information, and make connections. Participants will learn what funding and capacity-building resources are available in their regions and build partnerships with one another.

This will be a local dialogue between regional and/or county-wide organizations for nonprofits to understand what needs are out there, what resources are available, and to build connections. The goal is to be aligned and organized in addressing needs of the community.

Panelists will share what their response has been to COVID-19 and social justice issues, what their plans are for the next year, and how their work is shifting. Ample time for dialogue will be provided.

Registration closes 24 hours prior to event.
