Leadership Racine hosts second annual Nonprofit Draft Day

Leadership Racine, a program through Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce Foundation, hosted its second annual Nonprofit Draft Day on July 13, where individuals had the opportunity to be drafted by a nonprofit as a member of their board.

Eleven nonprofit organizations came to the event in search of new board or committee members. Some of the organizations present at the draft day included Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization, Inc., Racine Urban Garden Network, Women’s Resource Center and SAFE Haven of Racine.

Cassandra Glenn, a “free agent” who was interested in joining and was later drafted to the Racine Vocational Ministry, attended the draft day hoping to become more involved in the community.

She said she wanted to “(learn) more about the different organizations that are in our community.”

“There’s so many nonprofits that aren’t even here today that just do such amazing things in our community that help make our community strong and grow and thrive,” Glenn said.

Greater Racine County (GRC) is an initiative of the Racine County Economic Development Corporation (RCEDC)  that highlights and promotes the many positive assets of Racine County for those who decide to take root in Racine County.

We encourage visitors to explore Racine County, stay a while, and enjoy our communities.
