Gov Symp Attendee BreakdownThe Nonprofit Institute, established in 2002, offers a unique opportunity to connect with thousands of nonprofit organizations throughout San Diego County.  For all events, materials are distributed via e-newsletter to more than 3,000 people. Governance Symposium brochures are mailed to more than 4,200 individuals representing a wide variety of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations including representatives from private schools, hospitals and cultural organizations as well as human service organizations. Sponsors are recognized frequently throughout all events via signage, PowerPoint presentations and print materials.  The Nonprofit Institute is known for producing high-quality, high-impact events that are sold out months in advance.  The Annual Nonprofit Governance Symposium attracts 450 participants over two days; by early September, 30% of anticipated attendees had already registered for the 2014 symposium.  In its second year, the State of Nonprofits Summit attracted 180 participants for the one-day conference.  Sponsorship of our events guarantees exposure to a wide variety of individuals who attend our events looking for the services that our sponsors provide.
