This month promises to be fun and different. For the hot summer months we thought we would shine a spotlight on our nonprofit members, so drumroll please for…NONPROFIT JULY. We will have a series of short nonprofit member spotlights showcasing our community of those who pour their hearts into our city for the good of others. Come learn about what they are doing and see if there is a place you  would like to do some community good.

Nonprofits were asked to sign up at the last meeting. Due to the overwhelming response sign-ups are closed.

Nonprofits (in alphabetical order) to speak are:

Each group will get 3.5 minutes to tell about their nonprofit, they can hand out information. Since time will be limited links to each participating nonprofit are above: Each participant must be respectful of the other nonprofits time.

Helpful tip for our speakers, pick one topic and highlight it. Things like:

  • Tell the NKBPA how we can help your nonprofit
