Sept NextGen Event

September 21, 2017

Join us for our new “Featured Funder” spotlight at each event in 2017!  No speeches or lectures, just a chance to chat informally with a wide variety of funders from throughout the Lehigh Valley. Please note that this is not an opportunity for a personal philanthropic ask, but an opportunity to learn more about funding priorities, processes, deadlines, and decisions.  Learn directly from the decision makers as they network with the next generation of nonprofit professionals!


We are pleased to welcome our September Featured Funder: Colleen Mooney McGee from Crayola. Learn more about our Featured Funder below!
