While we would have loved to celebrate in person, the 2020 Nonprofit Breakfast was hosted virtually. Guests settled in with their own breakfasts and joined us for a morning celebrating the partnership between the regional nonprofit sector and UW-Parkside. This year, in lieu of the faculty/partner networking, participants have gained first access to this website featuring future partnership opportunities.
