Our keynote workshop will feature philanthropic advisor Kathryn W. Miree with a two-hour session on “How to Become an Expert in the Conversation of Philanthropy.” The workshop will equip attendees with current philanthropic trends and data, share language and approaches to use when engaging donors, and include participants in interactive role-play to put the principles into practice.

A healthy breakfast will be provided to start our morning together, and, in addition to the workshop, we will engage in activities that drive connection, leverage resources, and celebrate the changemakers at work in our community every day.

Participants will have a chance to leave with prizes that spur further connected, resilient, and thriving organizations, including unrestricted grants, coffee shop gift cards, and a retreat at an inspiring location in Reno County.

Registration is required in advance by filling out the form below. The Summit is free and open to the public.
