Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Brown Bag Lunch

What are the issues you see in our county? What would help your organization be more effective? Is your group stalled out or feeling disconnected?

Let’s come together over lunch to discover the resources in our own backyard. We may be seeing the same issues…have a skill we can share that can make a difference for your non-profit’s success. Projects in collaboration do better in the world of grants.

This is an opportunity to create new connections to better help your volunteer organization accomplish its mission.

We all aim to make Cook County a good home for everyone..let’s do it together.

Look for more information coming in the next few weeks about the other brown bag lunches in this series.
