The 3rd annual NEPA Learning Conference will be a hybrid event held on Wednesday, August 18, Thursday, August 19, and Friday, August 20th, 2021. Attendees will have the option to attend in-person with us at the Hilton Scranton OR virtually through the Whova app.
The NEPA Learning Conference is an opportunity for all of those involved in the nonprofit sector in Northeastern Pennsylvania to gather, learn, network, and grow together. Hosted by the Scranton Area Community Foundation and its capacity building arm, the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence, the conference provides a venue for nonprofit professionals, volunteers, and board members to understand what it means to be an evaluative, learning organization. A mix of keynote addresses, breakout sessions, and discussion circles, the conference makes space for individuals and organizations to learn how to best serve their community and how to better meet their missions.
Serving the community for 66 years, the Scranton Area Community Foundation is a philanthropic
partner, steward, grantmaker, and community catalyst on a mission to enhance the quality of life for
all people in the Lackawanna County region through the development of organized philanthropy. The
Scranton Area Community Foundation provides funding to help nonprofit organizations manage projects
and programs that enhance the quality of life throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.
In 2012, the Scranton Area Community Foundation established the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence after realizing that in addition to providing funding, they could help maximize nonprofit organizations’ ability to meet their critical missions by providing access to programs, training, and technical assistance. Through the Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence, the Scranton Area Community Foundation invests in the education and upkeep of local nonprofit organizations helping to improve their effectiveness and broaden their impact throughout the region.
The Scranton Area Community Foundation is incredibly grateful for support from Moses Taylor Foundation and additional partnerships and sponsorships that help make the NEPA Learning Conference possible and is proud to create capacity-building opportunities for nonprofit partners across the region.
