TVNPA Panelists, January 2019


Planning fundraising and stewardship events can be a challenge! 

Attracting the right people, generating positive results and growing with your organization throughout the course of planning a large fundraising event can stretch even the most well-organized nonprofits.

How can you improve your “batting average” when planning events to expand your capacity and improve your bottom line? Join us to hear from two of our successful local nonprofit leaders who have taken their organizations’ annual events from the “minors to the major league.”

TVNPA welcomes Angie Carmignani, Executive Director of The Taylor Family Foundation, and Ted Sortwell Clement, Jr., Executive Director of Save Mount Diablo, to the stage this month as they share with our nonprofit community what it takes to hit that fundraising event "right out of the park!"
