Nonprofit Leader Series: Meghan Walsh of Roots Ethiopia

Why reinvent the fundraising wheel when you can borrow ideas from your nonprofit peers?

Join us for a virtual conversation with Meghan Walsh, Founder and Board Chair of Roots Ethiopia. Roots Ethiopia partners with communities in Ethiopia to turn local ideas into lasting change. They work together to improve schools, educate children, enable livelihoods, and include everyone. These are community priorities, so they’re Roots Ethiopia’s priorities.

During this webinar, we’ll discuss all things nonprofit-related, the Roots Ethiopia story, what a nonprofit founder’s day looks like, fundraising technology, what being a “connector” means, and more!
