Coffee & Connections


Coffee &

Ventura County Community Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Leadership invite you to grab a cup of coffee and join us for Coffee & Connections!

Coffee & Connections is a pilot networking program for non-profit professionals designed to cultivate community-based, mutually beneficial relationships with one another around shared goals and shared missions.

These bi-monthly virtual events will begin with brief orientations to Ventura County Community Foundation and the Center for Nonprofit Leadership, and move into facilitated conversations with local non-profits to share missions, chat about the challenges and successes, and provide a deeper understanding of our community and its needs.

Coffee & Connections is a wonderful opportunity to meet and connect with fellow nonprofit professionals and learn together through shared experiences and discussions that focus on solutions, while building ongoing community partnerships.
