Thank You for Celebrating Kiva's 4th Birthday at The Hub!

We want to send out a huge thank you to everyone who came out on Tuesday night to celebrate Kiva's 4th Birthday. The event was an incredible success! Over 700 people came out to toast Kiva and its 100 million milestone! A huge thank you to The Hub Bay Area and their co-presenters, GOOD Magazine and The David Brower Center!

We also want to invite you all to become a member of The Hub. Check out their brochure and their events calendar to learn more about who they are and what they do. As a member, you'll have the access to a dynamic co-working space, professional tools and services and an interactive events series.
