Community FORUMS

Thrive's upcoming programs feature the most pressing challenges and the most creative solutions from our own membership community. Bring along a colleague and enjoy! Many are offered free of charge to Thrive members. Registration is required. 



Each quarter, Thrive holds a Community Forum bringing distinguished speakers and panels of experts to present information on a diverse range of timely subjects. Past forum topics include:

  • Philanthropy in Silicon Valley
  • Connecting Nonprofits with Tech: One Nonprofit's Success Story and Yours to Follow
  • Connecting Tech with Nonprofits: A Candid Discussion with Tech Leaders
  • High Tech Accelerator
  • The Impact of San Mateo County Sales Tax Measure A
  • Engaging NextGen Philanthropists

Structured networking is a key element of each community forum. Our annual Thrive Networking Extravaganza includes basic strategic breakouts and intentional, on-the-spot matching of needs and assets. A table is available for members to bring informational materials. 




"Even though Healthier Kids Foundation is located in Santa Clara County, I want to thank you for suggesting that we become a member of Thrive.  I have been to four or five events now and I constantly pick up new ideas and learn something helpful at each meeting.  I enjoy learning new ideas and benchmarking with your other members."

- Kathleen M. King, CEO, Healthier Kids Foundation Santa Clara County
