COVID-19 Update as of April 2022: Peer Groups will be held in-person at the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation.
Peer groups provide learning and networking in a fun, informal, and confidential setting. They connect nonprofit professionals to their peers working in similar positions at other nonprofit organizations.

Structure and Fees:
There is no cost to attend a peer group and we provide lunch for those who RSVP. Nonprofit professionals are always encouraged to join. The content of the meeting can include round table discussions, idea sharing, or a speaker. A Community Foundation staff member facilitates peer group meetings. Peer group members and staff commit to creating a confidential setting for peer groups.
