Community Resource Center and Colorado Association of Funders present State of the Sector! This event is a unique opportunity for nonprofit leaders, foundation staff, elected officials, and stakeholders to reflect on the current state of Colorado’s nonprofit sector and discuss opportunities for 2018.

The event incorporates:

  • Intentional networking opportunities
  • Celebration of our sector’s work

Walk away feeling energized about the good work our sector is doing and gain a better understanding of nonprofit successes and challenges, important or emerging innovations and trends, and how we can better mobilize and create stronger, more vibrant communities across Colorado.

We want to hear from you!

All of our roundtable offerings are expertly facilitated by CRC staff to ensure you get the most out of every meeting.
