Marin Founders Documentary Series

The goal of the first Marin Founders Celebration is to publicly acknowledge and celebrate the work of Marin nonprofit founders.  All founders are invited and encouraged to attend. We are especially celebrating founders whose organizations have been in existence ten years and more.

Marin Founders Documentary
