We get it. 2020 has been a challenging year thus far. And while we acknowledge the issues we’re facing as a community, a nation and a world are real, we think there’s space for joyous celebration too – especially within the nonprofit community, our champions of encouragement. So, we encourage you to read, watch and pass on these stories of local encouragement.

We look forward to all 2021 has in store.
