Business-Nonprofit Partnerships Crucial to Transforming Communities
Whether in Memphis, Nashville or metro Denver, there are success stories. Businesses and nonprofits coming together not just to create jobs, but to forge life-changing opportunities that turn out to be positive for everyone involved.
Many of those stories were told Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the second Market Solutions for Community Transformation Pre-Conference. The event was held in conjunction with the Christian Community Development Association annual conference Nov. 11-14 at the Memphis Cook Convention Center.
At one level, the message was as simple—and as powerful—as a young woman named Annie standing up before a full hotel conference room and describing her journey with an economy of heartfelt words.
