Nonprofits & Java

Nonprofits & Java

Nonprofits & Java is in the middle of a redesign and will return soon with a new series of guests!

Nonprofits and Java evolved from an idea that developed while working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many aspects of our day-to-day we can very easily accomplish from home. However, one missing piece turned out to be a significant part of our day - connecting to the community around us to learn more about the nonprofit, community organization, and the grass-roots world – not just in Milwaukee – but around the state of Wisconsin.

Nonprofits & Java is a conversation with people from all different walks of the social sector – the arts, public health, social justice, philanthropy, and more – to find out what we can learn as we explore the passion behind our communities. This podcast aims to introduce listeners to the nonprofit world - and the people who work so hard behind the scenes to support and build the communities around us.
