As a thank you to the many dedicated nonprofit professionals in our community, the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation hosted its first annual Nonprofit Party on November 7, 2019. The new event, which will change locations each year, welcomed over 160 local nonprofit professionals to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art.
The Party offered a chance for people to relax and socialize among their peers. “We’re always looking for ways to collaborate with and support nonprofits,” said Carrie Walker, Nonprofit Network Manager at the Community Foundation. “This is just a chance for us to stop and thank them for their dedication to our community.”
At the Party, two outstanding nonprofit professionals were recognized for their contributions to the field. In addition to the award, each recipient’s organization received a $1,000 grant designated for staff development. These awards were previously presented at the Celebration of Community event.
