As we enter the season of giving, please join us for our 2nd Annual Non-Profit Showcase. Award winning speaker Wendy Steele will share the impact of generosity in business and how you can build a culture of philanthropy in your workplace.

Wendy Steele understands the impact of generosity and has been encouraging philanthropy for most of her adult life.  In 2001 she launched and led an innovative pass-through foundation called Impact 100 which brings transformational grants to the communities it serves across five broad focus areas: Culture, Education, Environment, Family and Health & Wellness. Today, her concept has been replicated in 38 cities around the globe and continues to expand. By the end of 2016, Impact 100 organizations in the United States alone will have given away more than $42 million to worthy non-profits. Wendy's work has been recognized in a number of local, regional and national media outlets including Fortune Small Business Magazine, People Magazine, USA Today, the CBS Evening News, Women's Enterprise and others.

Special Non-Profit Showcase!

Be inspired by the philanthropic efforts within our community! Our Non-Profit members will be exhibiting their services and organizations before and after the lunch/keynote presentation, from 11 a.m.-12 p.m., and again from 1:00-1:30 p.m. Please come early or stay late and get to know these organizations and the important services they provide to our community.
