Register today for the 2023 QCBJ Connect for a Cause Event– $5 of each ticket purchased will go to a local non-profit in attendance.

Philanthropy can help bridge the gap between a community’s need for growth and the people who can and want to drive that growth but need support to do so. This networking event is meant to connect our region’s businesses that are committed to philanthropic work and giving with nonprofits that are making significant contributions to the communities where we live and work.

Unable to attend? Want to give more than $5 to a local cause? No problem. Donate your desired amount here. All donations will be split between non-profits in attendance at the event.
