The Mahaiwe recently hosted the first Berkshire Summit for Nonprofits.
The intention was to connect with other nonprofit leaders as we CELEBRATE our contributions, SHARE information, BUILD a common knowledge about the county’s assets, and IMAGINE how we can help solve some of our common challenges.
With approximately 500 organizations in Berkshire County, nonprofits are a substantial economic and social force, one that you make possible with your dedication and hard work.
We may have different missions in human services, the arts, environment, and education, but we all share the goal of creating an even more vibrant and sustainable community.
Here are some of the resources that were shared at this convening.
