Recall that the Franklin Area Nonprofit Network (FANN) - is a Fanntastic group!!!
A - We started because
The business community has the Franklin Downtown Partnership or the United Regional Chamber of Commerce/Milford Chamber of Commerce to provide a ‘circle of friends’ for networking, sharing, etc.
The cultural organizations also have their new ‘circle of friends’ with the Franklin Cultural District designation and the coordination lead by the Franklin Cultural District Committee
The nonprofits based in Franklin did not (yet) have a similar ‘circle of friends’ to coordinate with, and yet of the groups/organizations or small businesses in the area, they could very well be the group most in need of one.
Hence, the desire to facilitate this gathering of the approx. 100 nonprofits based in Franklin. Ultimately the scope was decided to expand to include those 'serving' Franklin, not just those 'based' here.
Q - What are the Objectives for the group?
A - There are some initial objectives (so far) and we anticipate more to come as we go. Thus far we have
Confirm listing of nonprofits and key contacts
Facilitate a series of meetings to bring these folks to the table
Help them understand who is around the table (introductions)
Record the intros for reuse by each group and by Franklin TV, wfpr.fr radio as promos for the nonprofits
Determine what the group wants to do going forward
Minor but important detail take-aways
Update the social services listing kept by the Town of Franklin
Reinforce use of the Community calendar for event communications/awareness and importantly, planning future events
Leverage Franklin.TV, wfpr.fm and Franklin Matters to "amplify the public good"
