Abstract

The descriptive study analyzes the relationship between the funds spent by local nonprofits to attend and network at cost-based events organized by other community entities and the benefits gained for participating in that event.

Answering:

• Is allocating resources to networking events worth it?

• What expectations do nonprofit leaders have of networking?

• Do nonprofit leaders believe there is value to participate in these events to raise awareness, funds and additional resources?

The research provides a basis for budgeting decisions as it relates to allocating funds toward cost-based, non-mission specific, networking events.
