Speed Networking Event

The Spartanburg County Foundation is hosting a special “Speed Networking” event that will expose Nonprofit Organizations to quality grassroots leaders who are looking for opportunities to serve!  This special event is designed to impact two groups in our community.

148 W. Main Street, Spartanburg

I. Nonprofit Organizations

At the heart of every successful nonprofit organization are a group of committed volunteer leaders that offer support and guidance by sharing their time, talents, and treasures.  Ironically, it can sometimes be verydifficult to fill those leadership positions with the right individuals.


Through this special “Speed Networking Event,” you will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with 5 Grassroots Leadership Development Institute Alumni who are seeking to invest in the community that they call home, as well as connect with several others.

You don’t want to miss this unique opportunity to connect with quality leaders who want to make a difference!

SEATING IS LIMITED – Reserve your spot today by emailing Ashley Thomason.
