Skill CONNECT Testimonials
Tracking Our Impact
BVU’s Skill CONNECT harnesses the time and talent of business and community volunteers to build capacity and create opportunities for nonprofits.
Made possible by the Community Impact Fund
Nonprofits faced unprecedented strain during the COVID-19 pandemic, so BVU waived all Ask the Expert program fees to provide the expertise necessary to address strategic and financial pressures.
BVU’s Community Impact Fund was launched to maintain Ask the Expert as a free service to all Northeast Ohio nonprofits indefinitely and to pay tribute to Brian Broadbent, BVU’s former CEO and a passionate advocate for Skill CONNECT.
