Entry Points: Philanthropy’s Response to the Opioid Use Disorder Crisis

Thu, September 5, 2019,
10:00am to 11:30am CDT

As rural and urban communities grapple with how to respond and tackle the epidemic of opioid use and substance use disorders, philanthropy is learning, leveraging, supporting, and leading in different ways to respond to the crisis. Join Indiana Philanthropy Alliance, Philanthropy West Virginia and Philanthropy Ohio as they share the work underway in their respective states with philanthropic leaders working with local partners making progress in advancing solutions. This webinar will provide your organization and your members with ideas, strategies, and replicable models that foundations can apply in your work.

This event is free and open to Philanthropy Northwest member organizations. Please register by emailing info@philanthropywv.org
