Nonprofit Utopia Launch

See bigger map


What if you could be a part of a community where you can get your questions answered, from the comfort of your own office, by people who have been there, done that?

We are building Nonprofit Utopia, an online community of emerging nonprofit leaders. The community will provide ongoing professional development and networking opportunities in which experienced nonprofit professionals can share expertise with the next generation of ethical leaders. The overarching goal of the community is to give our members the tools they need to develop strong organizations that will make a lasting impact.

Join us for the formal launch on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm at Blue 1647, located at 2150 South Canalport Avenue in Chicago.  We will demonstrate the site navigation and show you how to make the most of your membership. You will have an opportunity to meet Nonprofit Utopia members in person, and share ideas about how we can collectively bring the online community to its highest and best use.

You’ll hear from Emile Cambry, Founder and CEO of Blue 1647 and Shelby Parchman, Managing Partner of Urban Strategies.  The featured speaker for the evening is Gina Bianchini, CEO of Mighty Networks and Entrepreneur in Residence for Andreessen Horowitzventure firm. Theo Leonard, Jr., Agent with Country Financial, will be the Master of Ceremonies. We will also stream the event live on Facebook, for those of you who can’t make the event in person.

Register here. Be sure to visit our landing page at, and look around.
