Northern California Grantmakers and The Communications Network invite you to the kick-off of ComNetwork San Francisco. The Communications Network is made up of people working in foundations, at nonprofits, and as consultants – all with the goal of using communications to fuel social change. 

If you’re interested in meeting other communications professionals, learning about great work in the social sector, and having a good time, join us as we kick off ComNetwork San Francisco! We want this group to be an essential resource for local social change communicators to learn, share, and network.

Food, drinks, and camaraderie provided – Free!

In addition to getting to know each other better, one goal for this kick-off event for ComNetwork San Francisco is to brainstorm about future programming: What topics should we cover? Which speakers might be of interest? How often should we aim to meet? 

Who Should Attend

Anyone working in communications at a Bay Area nonprofit organization or foundation, or in a professional firm/private consulting practice that focuses on the social sector. 


The space is limited to about 50 people, so please RSVP on our MeetUp page to reserve a spot.
