Brentwood, CA – Contra Costa County Supervisor Diane Burgis will convene an East County Nonprofit Roundtable on Monday, April 29, 2018 from 10:00AM – 12:00 PM at Brentwood Community Center, 150 City Park Way, Brentwood.

In a release prepared by her office, Supervisor Burgis said she recognizes the many needs that nonprofits fill in every community, as well as the challenges of running a nonprofit. It is recognized regionally that nonprofits from other parts of the county receive more funding than in East County and Supervisor Burgis wants to help change that.

“I want to help our nonprofits access the funding that is out there by giving them access to training and learning opportunities locally,” she said.

“We need to support our local nonprofits and strengthen our support base here in East County,” she added. “Grant requirements and funding cycles are often changing and building a solid financial foundation can be a challenge for new nonprofits.” 

All local nonprofits (any cause) are encouraged to participate and explore fundraising and volunteer options. The roundtable is intended for groups based in or serving East Contra Costa County and will continue to meet on a quarterly basis. Her office said they look forward to continuing their work to identify common purposes, promote cooperation among groups, and offer opportunities for collaboration.

Please RSVP for the event ASAP to receive agenda updates and printable documents as the event nears.
