RALEIGH, N.C. – To help build the strength and capacity of local nonprofits, the City of Raleigh is hosting its second-annual Project LIFT conference on April 28 at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh.

The all-day conference, themed “Resource Raleigh: Ready for Recovery,” will feature a dozen 90-minute workshops on topics including grantwriting, fundraising, volunteer management, strategic planning, board engagement and IRS compliance.

The keynote address will be given by Jeanne Tedrow, co-founder and CEO of Durham-based Passage Home, a community development corporation that works with homeless families and former inmates in low-income communities.

Opportunities for networking will be available at the beginning and end of the conference, and a nonprofit resource fair will showcase local organizations that provide resources for the nonprofit sector.

The inaugural conference last spring drew over 130 nonprofit professionals and attendance this year is expected to top 150.

The fee for the conference is $45 and includes access to all sessions as well as breakfast and lunch.
