Life is an adventure in giving!
2020 will go down as a humbling year. Our Nonprofit/Philanthropy/Social Enterprise/Purpose-Driven sector came together to do what it does best – support people, families, environments, animals and communities.
It’s time to celebrate the extra agility and innovation by individuals, organisations and funders and be energised by it. And to regret that creativity and advocacy couldn’t counter all the impacts of such a year on our community sector.
Like you, we at ACPNS have tried to be good listeners and agile pathfinders for our students and robust researchers for the sector.
Thanks to the many of you who have joined in our 30+ events and webinars. Look out for lots more as ACPNS celebrates its 20th year in 2021!
As you set your goals for next year, we hope our 6 knowledge gifts to you below bring you ‘return on learning’.
Our 7th gift is a few of the moments/thoughts that touched our days in this unusual year of challenge.
