Cause-Minded Conversations

Throughout the year, we host a number of events that we fondly call "Cause-Minded Conversations" where we bring together leaders to highlight and discuss topics that are top of mind for our donors, nonprofit partners and community members. Our recent topics have included advancing economic opportunity, sharing neuro-knowledge for children's brain health to better reach their full potential, addressing the growing needs in Collin County, and more.
