Local residents looking to become more involved in their community are invited to Nonprofit Speed Dating on May 16 at the Stone Lodge in Fremont.

Through a series of informal chats with nonprofit organizations in a fun atmosphere, individuals will get a better picture of what each nonprofit does and where their personal skills and talents might be needed most.

Refreshments will be provided and attendees will rotate among tables staffed by representatives from a variety of local nonprofits. They will learn more about the organizations’ goals and needs and how their missions and priorities may match up.

The free event is hosted by Fremont Area Community Foundation in partnership with the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University.

“This is a great event for anyone curious about local nonprofits and what they do,” said Mark Petz, FACF special projects coordinator. “It is also ideal for anyone thinking about serving on a nonprofit board or committee, now or in the future.”

“Board service is an outstanding way to get to know the community, meet new people and learn new skills, and even to build your resume and professional experience,” continued Petz.

The event will also help local nonprofits expand their pools of volunteers interested in contributing their service, expertise, and leadership.

Nonprofit Speed Dating will be held Tuesday, May 16 from 5-7 p.m. at the Stone Lodge in Fremont (4715 Trillium Springs Blvd).
