Working Together

What Are the Different Summits?

Summits include opportunities for nonprofits to come together in a supportive environment and connect with and learn from each other, leading at times to ongoing mutual support and collaboration.

Strengthening Communities Summits bring together organizations that enhance community life and focus on a range of social, economic, and environmental issues. The majority of participating organizations are based in the Mid-Hudson Valley, enhancing opportunities to continue developing relationships or partnerships.
