Book Club

The Discussion Table Book Club

The CFJC hosts a community book club! This opportunity is open to anyone – donors, nonprofit partners, and community members. After her inspiring keynote at our 20th Anniversary Celebration Event, we decided to do a deep dive into Joan Garry’s, “Guide to Nonprofit Leadership, Because the World is Counting on YOU.” Discussions on Garry’s book wrapped up in April of 2021, and the next topic of discussion is FUNDRAISING! The Discussion Table Book Club is an informal space for professional development, networking, and learning. We hope you’ll join us whether or not you’ve finished all the reading!


We will be starting discussions on No More Duct Tape Fundraising: A Nonprofit Leaders Guide to Raising More Money by Rachel Ramjattan, CFRE in May of 2021. If you’d like to join us, please email to be included on book club update emails, and register for our virtual discussions below!
