Kern Community Foundation Announces 2020 Philanthropy on Tap Presenting Nonprofits!

Kern Community Foundation is pleased to announce the 2020 lineup of presenting agencies in our Nonprofit Showcase Series, Philanthropy on Tap, conducted in partnership with the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce and its Bakersfield Young Professionals (BYP) Program.

The purpose of Philanthropy on Tap is to introduce the work of a wide range of nonprofits to the greater community, and highlight opportunities for philanthropic and volunteer engagement with them. In a relaxed setting, over drinks and hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Kern Community Foundation, we are helping to expand strategic networking connections between our for-profit and nonprofit partners in the spirit of our mission:

“Growing community. Growing philanthropy.”
