What’s next for the nonprofit industry?

We’re bringing our popular nonprofit industry update downtown!

After a pandemic-induced hiatus, GRF is excited to resume our leadership series and offer the 2024 nonprofit industry update as an in-person event.

Join us on May 9, 2024, at the historic Fraunces Tavern for engaging discussions around the topics that matter most to nonprofit leaders.
