About this series
Whether you’re part of a nonprofit organization, a funding organization, or just interested in philanthropy, the Johnson Center is here to offer support and insights, and to learn from your experiences.
Grab your lunch and join us on Zoom every third Thursday of the month for “Lunch with the Johnson Center” — a free discussion series!
This discussion series provides you with an opportunity to meet different members of the Center’s team and to be part of a casual, facilitated discussion around a theme or key question.
This month’s topic: “Office Hours”
This session will be led by Tamela Spicer and Michael Moody, who want to learn about your interests in philanthropy and what you’d like to see us offer in our suite of new learning opportunities.
