Each year Impact100 Sonoma has held workshops for Sonoma Valley nonprofits to provide information to facilitate their application for either an Impact $100,000 grant or a Community Grant. This year these events are in the form of two participatory symposia.
The first of these was held on Wednesday, October 16 at St. Leo’s Church in Sonoma. More than 60 community members including representatives from 32 nonprofits, Impact100 members, and friends gathered at St. Leo’s Community Room to share their thoughts about the future they would like to see for Sonoma Valley. Discussions from the symposium have been captured in a variety of formats:
- A website post of the symposium
- Symposium Brief
- A graphical summary prepared by facilitator, Tom Benthin
- A word cloud (see below) that represents the important take-home messages of the discussions
Symposium #2: Developing Solutions and Programs to Meet the Needs of Sonoma Valley
The second symposium took place at St. Leo’s Church on Wednesday, November 13 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm. More than 70 community members including representatives from 24 nonprofits, Impact100 members, and friends gathered to build on the conversations initiated at the first symposium. These discussions have been captured in a variety of formats:
