NextGen Networking

Join other young professionals working in fundraising and the non-profit sector for the Fall edition of NextGen Networking, an evening of casual drinks and conversation, on Wednesday, October 8th at 5:30 p.m. at the Fox and Feather on Elgin Street.

After the success of our inaugural event in June at the Earl of Sussex, we look forward to another evening of engaging conversation and the opportunity to connect with other young people working in the fundraising/non-profit sector in Ottawa.

About the event:

Next Gen fundraising professionals in Ottawa need a place to share best practices, compare campaigns, complain about database malfunctions, offer advice on volunteer recruitment and inquire about CRA regulations. A place to find likeminded individuals to bounce ideas off of, to seek guidance on outreach and advocacy strategies and chitchat about the hottest new venues in town.

This event is open to all young professionals working or volunteering in the non-profit sector.

This event is FREE (drinks and food are not covered, but will be available to buy). The event will take place upstairs.


Please confirm your attendance by getting a free ticket from our Eventbrite page:
