What a great day! Attenders of Summit 2016 were the key to a successful event. Many thanks to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to join us. Special thanks to Brian Oehler, Executive Director at the Hal and Charlie Peterson Foundation, for sponsoring and attending Summit. The Community Foundation is thankful for the opportunity to partner with the Peterson Foundation to bring quality, affordable training and education to the Texas Hill Country.
As always, Bob Hickerson did a great job in hosting us at the
Hill Country University Center. Thanks, Bob!
Dates and details will be determined soon for Summit 2017; however, we do know that the event will be held in Kerrville at the Salvation Army Kroc Center. Watch for more info coming your way!
Not sure if Summit is for you? Check out what these Summit Frequent Fliers have to say:
"Non-profit administration is a challenging business - professionalism is a must to court benefactors, yet we must dedicate as much of our resources as possible to serving our mission; attending The Community Foundation's Summit gives non-profit administrators the opportunity to learn about tools and strategies implemented by other non-profits, and it helps build a network of peers to call on year-round. Summit is a great service provided by The Community Foundation of the Hill Country." - Mary Muse, Executive Director, Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation - Kerrville, Texas
"Marilyn and I enjoyed attending the Summit meetings because it gave us a better insight into the workings of non-profits, the challenges they face, and the steps they are encouraged to take to address those problems. As holders of a donor advised fund, we feel better equipped to make decisions regarding our recommendations for funding." - AC Schwethelm, Donor - Comfort, Texas
