Nonprofit Learning

Manatee Connects provides a forum for executive directors, development professionals, board members and program staff to network and share, while we learn from a local expert in nonprofit management, fundraising, communications, governance or other areas of interest.

Location: Manatee Community Foundation, 2820 Manatee Avenue West, Bradenton
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
