Local Nonprofits Have 5 Minutes to Tell Their Story
The Luzerne Foundation will hold its first-ever Nonprofit Forum on Wednesday March 19th at Luzerne County Community College’s Conference Center and Wednesday March 26th at Genetti’s Best Western in Wilkes-Barre. All Luzerne County 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations are invited to sign up for a five minute time slot during which they will have the opportunity to present their current needs and challenges to The Foundation’s Grants Distribution Committee, Foundation leadership, donors and friends, and other foundations and guests.
“This is a chance for a nonprofit to explain, from their perspective, the most pressing needs and how they are planning to address them,” noted Charles Barber, President and CEO of The Luzerne Foundation. “It’s not asking for money, it’s creating awareness. We hope coalitions will be formed and ideas exchanged,” he continued.
The Nonprofit Forum is one of The Luzerne Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Celebration schedule of events and is part of a community needs assessment that will shape future Foundation grant-making.
The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast followed by the five minute presentations. Eligible nonprofits must RSVP in order to participate by calling The Luzerne Foundation office at 570-714-1570.
