The North Texas Nonprofit and Business Summit

The North Texas Nonprofit and Business Summit

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The North Texas Nonprofit and Business Summit was at Midwestern State University earlier today.

Working better together is what the Summit was all about. Classes were hosted to help nonprofits learn how to raise money more effectively. That includes getting the word out about their cause and recruiting volunteers to help. One of the classes was about building a website and another one was about reaching millennials.

"It's just really exciting to see all the energy, behind this event and all the passionate people bringing various causes that really help our community. Whether it's meals on wheels or the kitchen or the various youth organizations," Gillespie said, "there's so many different organizations that contribute to the quality of life here in Wichita Falls."

Gillespie, a board member for The Kitchen, said fundraising used in the past doesn't always work for this generation. Other sessions also help nonprofits learn how to apply for grants or get partnerships.
