Crowell & Moring Hosts Developing Minds' First MindShare Event for Nonprofits
Washington, D.C. – May 22, 2008: Crowell & Moring LLP's New York office proudly hosted Developing Minds' first MindShare event - a roundtable discussion where representatives of participating non-profit organizations can meet and brainstorm innovative ways to address challenges common to each of their organizations. The first MindShare event focused on ways to increase volunteer participation and was a great success. Meetings are scheduled to take place on a regular basis relating to such topics as volunteer retention, volunteer training, staff professional development, staff retention, fund raising evaluations, and marketing. Participants from the first event included representatives from non-profit organizations including the Institute of International Education, Street Project, iMentor, Junior Achievements of New York, Neighborhood Coalition for Shelter, and City Year.
Developing Minds, which was launched in 2002 to promote volunteerism by connecting volunteers and nonprofit organizations using a time-based auction model, masterminded the concept for this event, hoping it would assist the non-profit community and serve as an outreach program to ignite positive change.
