It’s not very often that you get an inside look into the inner workings of some of South Carolina’s most innovative and successful nonprofits. But as part of the 2018 SC Nonprofit Summit, that’s exactly what you get to do.
A unique component of your Nonprofit Summit is that you have the opportunity to tour several Lowcountry nonprofits and learn more about the incredible work they are doing. Think of it as a fun field trip for professionals — minus the chaperones.
