Impact Solutions: Join us on Thursday, Dec. 10, for conversation about best practices

Join us to ring in the holidays with our first Impact Solutions meetup on Thursday, Dec. 10.

Benjamin's Desk, 1701 Walnut St.

Benjamin's Desk, 1701 Walnut St.

For Christmas, Team Generocity asks you for one thing: Join us to ring in the holidays with our first Impact Solutions meetup on Thursday, Dec. 10. For this monthly event, we’re moving past overviews and introductions to jump into the nitty-gritty of what works and what doesn’t for mission-minded organizations.

We’ve recently updated our themes of coverage from the old, generic topics like “sustainability” and “education.” We’re still covering those topics, but now we’re writing with impact in mind — impact in terms of “purpose,” “people,” “funding,” “results” and “method.”

The beauty of these new themes is that they apply to all sectors, nonprofit and for-profit alike. No matter what your organization type, we can all learn from each other about the highly effective methods or unique perspectives that got us to where we are today.

This will be the first in our programmed meetups, designed to help leaders in Philly succeed by bringing together people from different sectors to share best practices and have real conversations about what works and what doesn’t.

What does that look like? Meet us on the 10th at Benjamin’s Desk, 1701 Walnut St., at 6 p.m. for networking and to hear three presenters from community organizations:

  • Amanda Cameron of Norris Square Neighborhood Project, discussing NSNP’s earthship garden and getting youth activated in community projects
  • Beth Adams of Community Recyclingsharing how they shifted their clothing bin business model to a social movement engaging groups from Girl Scouts to Fortune 500 companies around Recycling for Reuse.
  • Caitlin Butler of the Mural Arts program, talking about how Neighborhood Time Exchange in West Philly brought artists and neighbors together

There will also be Q&A time to delve deeper into the presenters’ talks.

There you have it: networking, free beer and holiday cheer. Your time, especially during this holiday season, is valuable, so we’ll make sure this is a tactical and useful meetup — this and every month.
