The Inaugural NEPA Learning Conference, hosted by the Scranton Area Community Foundation’s Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence in partnership with Moses Taylor Foundation, will be taking place on Thursday, September 19, and Friday, September 20, 2019 at the Hilton Scranton and Conference Center. This conference will be an opportunity for local nonprofit organizations and nonprofit professionals to receive in-depth training from local and nationally-recognized presenters and to network with peers.

About The Organizer

Serving the community for 65 years, the Scranton Area Community Foundation is a philanthropic partner, steward, grantmaker, and community catalyst on a mission to enhance the quality of life for all people in the Lackawanna County region through the development of organized philanthropy. The Scranton Area Community Foundation provides funding to help nonprofit organizations manage projects and programs that enhance the quality of life throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.

In 2012, the Scranton Area Community Foundation established the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence after realizing that in addition to providing funding, they could help maximize nonprofit organizations’ ability to meet their critical missions by providing access to programs, training, and technical assistance. Through the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence, the Scranton Area Community Foundation invests in the education and upkeep of local nonprofit organizations helping to improve their effectiveness and broaden their impact throughout the region.

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is incredibly grateful for support from Moses Taylor Foundation and additional partnerships and sponsorships that help make the NEPA Learning Conference possible and is proud to create capacity-building opportunities for nonprofit partners across the region.
