OneStar Foundation: Texas Center for Social Impact and Greenlights for NonProfit Success announced today their partnership to present a statewide nonprofit conference, the Texas Nonprofit Summit, on September 23-24 at The Westin at the Domain in Austin, TX.
“This partnership is an exciting opportunity for both Greenlights and OneStar to exemplify our shared values of collaboration and innovation,” said Matt Kouri, Executive Director of Greenlights for NonProfit Success. “By combining our two conferences, the Crossroads Conference and the Governor’s Nonprofit Leadership Conference, we will increase our impact and create a premiere learning and networking experience for nonprofit stakeholders from across the state.”
The Texas Nonprofit Summit will bring together more than 600 nonprofit professionals to explore and experience collaboration, innovation, accountability and effectiveness. Conference attendees will learn about leading theories and practices impacting the nonprofit sector from Dan Pallotta, a nonprofit innovation leader and author of Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential, and Vinay Bhagat, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Convio, Inc., as well as other nationally recognized experts in the nonprofit sector.
“OneStar Foundation is pleased to continue the strong legacy of the Governor’s Nonprofit Leadership Conference in partnership with such an outstanding local organization,” said Elizabeth Darling, President and CEO of OneStar Foundation. “Texas is better served when nonprofits combine their efforts to leverage the best of each organization. The Texas Nonprofit Summit is a great example of such a collaboration.”
The Texas Nonprofit Summit theme is On a Mission: Igniting a Nonprofit Revolution. A revolution is defined as a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something; a change of paradigm; an activity or movement designed to effect fundamental changes. Our rapidly changing environment - largely affected by the economy and evolving technology - presents an opportunity for nonprofits to revolutionize how we work, how we serve, and how we connect.
