Throughout the quarter, we facilitate 3 avenues for community members to make an impact on the nonproifts in our community?
Each quarter, our community focused activities, supporting respective nonprofits, follow a monthly cadence. Month 1: raising awareness (Learn); Month 2: volunteering (Engage); and Month 3: fundraising (Give).
The first month of each quarter we focus on driving awareness or educating community members about the work of our Impact Partner. We do this through feature article(s), virtual or in-person events (workshops, panel discussions, etc.) and publishing or promoting jobs or other related content from our about our Impact Partner:
