Join us for an informational working session that continues an ongoing conversation of how to help grow the capacity of Paterson’s nonprofit sector.  Building upon the results of a recent gap analysis of the city’s nonprofits, we will dig deeper to understand the strengths, challenges, opportunities, and threats to individual organizations and the sector at large.  This meeting will look at the city’s primary education nonprofit organization, the Paterson Education Fund.  PEF works to build the community's civic capacity to support, monitor, advocate and act on education reform to ensure that all Paterson children achieve high academic standards. PEF’s critical investments expand educators’ and families’ vision of what Paterson children can do. Join us for a conversation with Rosie Grant, Executive Director of the Paterson Education Fund.  We will learn about their recent program successes and explore opportunities and threats to educational progress in Paterson and to PEF’s work.  We’ve carved out time to roll up our sleeves to talk about philanthropy’s role in ensuring success, so come prepared to help design potential next steps.
