Take a look at our programs and upcoming events and see how you can engage in one or more of these great opportunities.

Luncheon Series

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our ‘typical schedule’ has changed. We are still offering important and relevant information – but in different formats. The best way to stay in the loop on what we are offering is to check our website, follow our social media, and email Margaux Dolenc at mdolenc@ngcf.org to ensure you are receiving our nonprofit email newsletters.

The next program is a FREE Webinar on August 20 from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. on Zoom.
Email Margaux at mdolenc@ngcf.org for the Zoom link!

Typically our nonprofit luncheon series are held monthly at NGCF with programming on key topics  that are important to nonprofit leaders and board members. The schedule for the day of the program is: Networking: 11:00-11:30 a.m. and Program: 11:30 a.m. -1 p.m. with a $20 registration fee that includes lunch and a drink.

Learning Series

Learning sessions are offered twice a year to offer attendees a chance to dive further into topics that will be of interest to them and their growing organizations.

Both of the 2020 Learning Series are taught by Columns Fundraising and each series is three parts. Contact Margaux at mdolenc@ngcf.org to sign up!
