Events are at 901 Rio Grande Blvd. NW, Suite D-220 unless otherwise noted.

6/5 12a-2p Brown Bag Luncheon: Logic Models
This month will be about understanding and developing logic models. These visual summaries, often required in grant proposals, tie together the aims you are trying to achieve and how you propose to get there.

The Grant Plant’s Aly Sanchez will present key concepts and walk through an example logic model.  Logic Models are also good for designing, planning, and revising programming – even when funding agencies don’t require them!  Bring your lunch and gather at our office!

6/7 8:30a-10a Capacity Builders Breakfast
If you help nonprofits build their capacity through funding, board development, strategic planning, evaluation, etc., then bring your breakfast and join us at our office for a casual event to network, find out what others are doing, and align efforts.  
6/14 11a-12p Member Connect
Cooperative Network members can now join an online chat to ask questions about their grant proposals, prospecting, and anything grants related.  To join the chat, just log-in to the platform at 11a on 6/14.

7/8 11a-12p Reading Circle The Social Profit Handbook by David Grant
The Social Profit Handbook: The Essential Guide to Setting Goals, Assessing Outcomes and Achieving Success for Mission-Driven Organizations by David Grant. The Social Profit Handbook offers those who lead, govern, and support mission-driven organizations and businesses new ways to assess their impact in order to improve future work rather than merely judge past performance.  Purchase the book:
