STEMpunk: Techtacular 2015

Join us Wednesday April 29th in the panoramic conference center at Pacific Tower. Techtacular is a fun no-ask networking event attending by leaders from the technology and nonprofit sectors. The theme of this year’s Techtacular is STEMpunk, a splendid mixture of the Steampunk genre with STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math as we profile First Robotics, which received a technology makeover thanks to Microsoft and 501 Commons.

Many Lights Foundation: Helping Many Lights Shine the Brightest

Many Lights Foundation (MLF) is dedicated to providing children in foster care with elders, adoptive families, and kinship caregivers to help their lights shine the brightest. When they decided to enlist the help of 501 Commons' Management Consulting Services, they knew they were putting their board of directors on a strong path toward becoming champions of these vulnerable children.
