Learn how you can help.
Nonprofit Connect is an opportunity for individuals to learn about people making a difference in their community and discover how they can get involved and contribute. Speakers from nonprofits present about programs run by their organizations and about the impact they are making in the lives of others. Individuals are encouraged to follow up by asking how they can become involved, or thinking about how they can use this motivation to give back to their communities in other ways.
On September 21, 2017, we hosted a Nonprofit Connect with speakers from four non-profit organizations in Edmonton:
- Boyle Street Community Services
