Cleveland Foundation Lecture 2019
On May 7th [Re]Builders attended the annual Cleveland Foundation lecture titled “An Environment for Success” hosted by Key Bank and featuring keynote speaker Bill Nye (the “Science Guy”!). CEO, Ronn Richard, spoke about the future of Cleveland, urging attendees to do their part in efforts to support our communities by investing in local nonprofits, engaging their neighbors, and advocating for renewable energy and green technologies not only in Northeast Ohio, but on a grand scale across the globe. Additionally, the Cleveland Foundation has committed to greatly increasing social impact investments in the Cleveland area. This is an exciting time for area nonprofits to double down on their commitments to our communities. Rebuilding Together Northeast Ohio is driven by the momentum of these keystone organizations and is excited to move forward utilizing the information learned at the Cleveland Foundation’s annual meeting to continuing improving how we serve communities in Northeast Ohio.
