Breakfast Club 2020 Application


Thank you for your application to The Breakfast Club Application! For the past 11 years, The Breakfast Club, led by Cause Effective in partnership with Candid, has empowered and energized development professionals by providing a space and community in the form of monthly workshops for directors of small development shops.

In 2019, we hosted 75 development leaders. Over the past decade, hundreds of development professionals have participated in cohort-building and professional development with The Breakfast Club. This year, we expect to welcome an even larger community of development professionals who are looking to learn and build off of each other's vast experience and expertise. 

The Breakfast Club this year will span three Fridays from May to July (May 22nd, June 12th and July 10th). Each session will be 2.5 hours, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. 

May 22nd: 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. 
June 12th:  9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. 
July 10th: 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all sessions will take place virtually, as we gather online to discuss topics that are timely for the current crisis.

*If we do have the opportunity to resume meetings in person, the address is: Candid, 32 Old Slip, New York, NY 10005.
