Praxis Nonprofit Showcase Event
Saturday, September 28, 2019
12:15 - 4:30 PM
Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas | Dallas, TX
Attendance is Complimentary
At Praxis, we are passionate about accelerating the work of Christ-following entrepreneurs who are compelled to advance the common good. We’d like to invite you to meet an inspiring group of entrepreneurs who have been selected as Fellows in the 2019 Praxis Nonprofit Accelerator.
During this invitation-only event, hosted within the annual conference of The Gathering, our goal is to provide a compelling opportunity for you to engage as mentors and philanthropists with some of the most creative work being done by Christians globally. During this private event you’ll hear well-crafted 5-minute presentations from our Fellows, mentor them through interactive open houses, engage in interactive conversations with leading investors, and connect with your peers in an informal setting.
This Showcase is included within the Praxis Accelerator, a program we run annually for Christian-led nonprofit organizations. Over the course of a year, selected Fellows attend four events: a kickoff event within the annual Praxis Redemptive Imagination Summit in May, a four-day retreat outside of New York in July, a three-day gathering near Los Angeles in September, and this Showcase. At our events, Fellows are guided by over 30 incredible mentors from top nonprofits, foundations, and businesses. In addition, our Praxis Core Mentor team works with each entrepreneur on presentation design, strategy execution, impact, financial sustainability, and spiritual formation.
Our goal is to provide Fellows with the knowledge and network they need to create world-class organizations, all within a safe setting that encourages them to explore how to fully express the Gospel within their work. As you get to know our Fellows, we think you’ll be encouraged about this next generation of talent putting their faith into action.
Rooms have already sold out for September 27-28 at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas — however we recommend the Aloft Las Colinas, less than a 5 minute drive away.
We recommend flying into either Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport or Dallas Love Field Airport, each within 20-25 minutes of the venue, depending on traffic. The estimated fare from the airport to our venue for the ridesharing service Lyft is generally $25 to $40, also dependent upon traffic.

MORE INFO ON THE GATHERING CONFERENCE
The Gathering, our gracious friends for the Praxis Finale, will be hosting its annual event September 26-29. Best described as a "community of givers," The Gathering is focused on cultivating friendships and best practices among Christian philanthropists who give, or have the capacity to give, $200,000 per year in donations to ministries. For those of you who qualify and are interested, we highly recommend attending -- it is a safe environment with a wonderful group of people, led by our friends Fred Smith and Josh Kwan. You can learn more about the annual event and register here, and we are happy to put you in touch should you want to learn more.
