MOUNTAIN RURAL PHILANTHROPY DAYS
will take place from June 24-26, 2015 in Rifle, Colorado.
What to Expect:
RPD conferences include many opportunities to increase your understanding of nonprofit best practices, collaborate with other community leaders, and connect with Front Range and local funders. The funder roundtables are a signature of the RPD program and provide a unique opportunity to meet one-on-one with grant makers in a rural setting. In 2014, the 12 core funders of the statewide RPD program donated over $45 million to Colorado’s rural communities.
- Rural Colorado’s nonprofit sector will have increased access to resources that support the operation of sustainable organizations in order to strengthen social impact.
- Grantmakers are increasingly engaged with rural Colorado community leaders to ensure a better understanding of regional challenges and collaborative opportunities.
- Rural communities have the resources needed to effectively collaborate on a regional scale by engaging nonprofit professionals, community leaders, government officials, and other statewide stakeholders.
