Elevate Your OrganizationCURATED SESSIONS

We understand the unique challenges faced by grassroots organizations, so we've meticulously crafted online sessions to meet the diverse needs of our community. These Learning Pathways are curated sessions that span from fundraising, to finance, to marketing and everything in between. Sessions are strategically designed to equip participants with practical skills, strategies, and tools you can apply immediately for growth and success. While the Big Green DAO provides a powerful network, these Learning Pathways are specifically dedicated to advance the impact each of our member organizations are able to achieve.
