Fundraisers Group is a collective of dedicated and passionate individuals who represent various nonprofits that serve Harrison County, whether staff, board members, or volunteer fundraisers.  The primary goal of this group is to explore creative ways to raise funds for the mission of their organizations. The group meets for a brown bag lunch every other month, providing a free and open space for attendees to come together, learn more and discuss their fundraising ideas.  This month, we will highlight storytelling with Steven Michael Carr.  Please remember the brown bag lunch begins at noon. Drinks are provided by the Foundation. We will have a Zoom option available if you are unable to attend in person at the Foundation office.  RSVP by emailing Michelle Dayvault at by Tuesday, April 4th.

By hosting this space, the Foundation aims to empower and support the nonprofit sector in Harrison County, ultimately leading to a stronger and more resilient community.  If you cannot attend in person at the HCCF Conference Room, we will have a Zoom option available for you to join remotely.  The remaining dates for meetings this year are June 7th, August 2nd, and October 4th, with no meeting in December.
