Florida Event Fundraising Conference to Support Cape Foundation
Thank you to everyone who attended the Florida Event Fundraising Conference. It was great to see all of the amazing nonprofit leaders that work so hard within our community.

A special thank you to our moderators and panel members. Also, a special thank you to Faith Presbyterian Church of Cape Coral for graciously hosting this amazing event.
Developing nonprofit leaders is not a "program" in itself, but a cost effective strategy to assist all organizations and community groups in accomplishing their diverse missions.
