Every month on the 4th Friday morning from 8:30 am – 9:45 am, Bozeman Area Community Foundation hosts an educational and collaborative gathering for all nonprofit leaders (including staff, volunteers and board members). All Nonprofit Café events are hosted at the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture.
February // Creating Meaningful Collaborations with the For-Profit Community
Conversation led by Kate Wiggins // Business Consultant
Where: Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture Ballroom
When: Friday, February 23rd, 8:30 am – 9:45 am
How much: It’s free to nonprofit board, staff, and volunteers!
What you will learn: Businesses want to help, but they don’t always know how. We’ll talk about what’s meaningful and motivating for everyone involved and how to foster relationships that create common ground and work toward common goals.
Let’s learn about our presenter, Kate Wiggins!
Kate Wiggins is a native North Carolinian and has lived in Bozeman for ten years. She owned The Leaf & Bean from 2006 until 2015, when she sold the business and entered graduate school at the University of Mississippi. There she studied the relevance of social and cultural factors in successful community engagement and social responsibility initiatives. She also has an undergraduate business degree from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. She now consults with small and mid-size businesses on a range of projects. The Bozeman Daily Chronicle included her on their 2013 list of Southwest Montana’s 20 Under 40, and Bozeman Business & Professional Women named her Employer of the Year in 2015.
This program is free and open to our community because of our generous sponsor, First Security Bank! They believe that every nonprofit should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive together.
