The Get Together Northwest NetCaring Lunches are not fundraising events. Attendees are encouraged to reach out to their network to help ministries identify resources that will help them further their cause. These needs may include material items (in-kind) like office furniture and equipment, client needs, etc. as well as professional expertise like creating a strategic plan for communication or project management. We want to know what you know about business, strategy, networking and creative problem-solving.
What is The Get Together Northwest? The mission of The Get Together Northwest is to engage business people in serving Christ-centered ministries using the gifts that God has equipped them with to run their businesses. These gifts include their professional expertise, network of contacts and entrepreneurial and life experience.
We accomplish our mission by holding monthly NetCaring™ lunches where business people have the opportunity to network with other business leaders and build relationships with representatives from vetted, Christ-centered ministries. Since 2008, Get Together Northwest has helped meet the needs of 25+ local ministries with a value of over 1.4 million dollars.
Who should attend this event?
Business people who want to network with like-minded business and ministry leaders in our community. Attendees will meet The Get Together Northwest’s Partner Ministries for the 2018-2019 season and have an opportunity to share ideas to challenges and meet the tangible needs of these ministries by engaging their personal and professional networks.
Is this event open to any nonprofit to participate? No. The Get Together Northwest’s NetCaring Lunches are designed for the local business person to connect with carefully vetted “Partner Ministries”. Only “Partner Ministries” that have completed an application process and approved as 12-month partners may present needs on behalf of their organizations.
What is the dress code? Business.
What should I expect at your NetCaring events?
• Each table will be hosted by a Get Together Northwest Ambassador who will facilitate the networking time during the meal.
• Each table will include one of twelve ministry representatives.
• Each ministry submits 3-5 needs each month. These needs are included in a packet of information at the table and on our website.
Are there volunteer opportunities? Yes! Volunteers are needed for event set up/break down, registration, greeting, and directing attendees to their seats. Contact Tonya Frye for more information.
How can my nonprofit become a Partner Ministry? The Get Together Northwest selects Nonprofit Partners on an annual basis through application only (March 1 – May 15). Nonprofits that are not official partners are welcome to attend events but are asked to support The Get Together Northwest’s Nonprofit Partners and not solicit support for their own organization at the events. To apply for partnership, interested nonprofits must attend a Discovery Meeting in February, prior to application. Check www.gettogethernw.org for more information.
