Get a Beer and Undo Nonprofit Power Dynamics (GBUNPD)

Next month, join your Nonprofit Alliance and Greenville Partnership for Philanthropy nonprofit leaders for their celebration of *Beverage to Enhance Equity in Relationships (*BEER for short) on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 from 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. hosted at Topside Pool Club, overlooking downtown Greenville.

If you're not familiar, the now national event was proposed and made popular by Vu Le, author of the blog Nonprofit AF and our 2019 Nonprofit Summit keynote speaker. Back in a 2016 blog post Vu wrote about wanting one thing: an informal meet-up for funders, nonprofits and foundation trustees to spend more time with each other with no agendas, to break down power imbalance and strengthen relationships in our sector. Proposed as "Get a *BEER and Undo Nonprofit Power Dynamics Day" (GBUNPD), it took off with several nonprofits around the country and celebrated annually! 

"Our event last year was such a hit because it gave nonprofits and funders a chance to relax, visit and celebrate the great work we do together," said Katy Smith, Facilitator at GPP of their 2018 event. "This truly was a social meet-up filled with creative conversations and we’re excited to join NPA in hosting it again." 


This year, the purpose will remain social and despite being called BEER, will have other drinks of your choice. First two drinks are free! And like last year, you can enter to win a copy of of Vu’s book, Unicorns Unite: How Nonprofits and Foundations Can Build EPIC Partnerships which is a must-read if you ask us.

You can RSVP here to join the fun!

*Please let us know if you are interested in sending more than three representatives from your organization.

*Nearby parking is available at Riverplace parking garage or Falls Street garage. Topside Pool Club can be accessed by using the elevator at 600 Falls Park Drive (lobby/elevator shared with Jianna).
