MUNCIE, IN—Nonprofit Support Network is excited to announce its first line up of services, Network Huddles, to support nonprofit organizations serving Muncie and Delaware County. Network Huddles are peer group meetings hosted and facilitated by the Nonprofit Support Network, a newly established organization designed to provide support to nonprofit organizations in Muncie and Delaware County. These meetings offer nonprofit professionals, in any role, ongoing opportunities to connect and learn with their peers who share similar job responsibilities, face similar challenges, or have interest in a similar topic.
Network Huddles will kick off with a Shared Services Huddle on Monday, July 18, 2022 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm at Mitchell Early Childhood and Family Center. Nonprofit staff in the roles of executive director, staff accountant, board chair, or similar positions are encouraged to attend to learn more about shared services and collaborating with other nonprofits to explore efficiency in business functions.
A second Network Huddle, called Development Huddle, will provide a space for dedicated work on fundraising plans and allow for group brainstorming about challenges. This Network Huddle is for individuals who are responsible for development and fundraising at their nonprofit organization. The Development Huddle will convene for the first time on Monday, July 25 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Innovation Connector.
Peer groups provide an opportunity for nonprofit professionals to connect with each other in a safe and confidential space. Nonprofit organizations face many of the same challenges and sometimes they can seem unique to each organization. By convening groups of organizations regularly, collaborations and partnerships grow and develop, knowledge is shared, and professional and emotional support is cultivated.
Additional Network Huddles are being explored with a goal of offering a variety of peer groups for all nonprofit professionals to have a space to learn and connect.
