YNPNsfba has been a launchpad for my professional growth since I've entered the nonprofit sector.

    18th Annual Party

    Thank you everyone who joined us at YNPNsfba's 18th Annual Party on November 19th at ImpactHub in San Francisco. The night started off with catered dinner by Basil Canteen, wine provided by Safeway, and beer from Ninkasi Brewing. After a few bites, we welcomed familiar faces in the crowd --Brianna Swartz, Tehshan Lee, and Nicole Howell (photo above), some of whom were former YNPNsfba Board Members. 

    thumb_IMG_0080_1024.jpgAs guests arrived, inspiring quotes were displayed throughout the venue. Quotes were taken from our recent survey in which young nonprofiteers told us their number one reason why they chose to work in the nonprofit sector. Some of them were, "I don't want to just focus on maximizing profits" to "[wanting] to make real change in the world." 

    thumb_IMG_0104_1024.jpgthumb_IMG_0139_1024.jpgAfter letting folks settle in and mingle, we had Karla Monterroso, Vice President of Student Programs at Code2040, share her story and give some hard truths about working in the nonprofit sector. But of course, with some difficult words of wisdom, came some positive advice for young professionals in the crowd to carry onto 2016, such as how to develop their personal growth and the importance of "[being] in community with each other." In case you missed out on the party, one of our members, Kate Goyette, told us that Karla's speech was, "one of the most authentic that she's heard in a long time." thumb_IMG_0128_1024.jpg

    To add the the festivities, we gave out several raffle items, including two tickets to Planet Granite, a gift basket of wine & chocolate goodies, two restaurant dining coupons worth $25 each (from Angie Jin), two books (from Ann Lehman), and 15 books (from Tam Pham), which was given out to folks who showed us their Limbo skills.

    Directly following the raffle giveaways, we presented our annual awards to the three community chosen awardees.
