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 with grantmakers in a rural setting.

The goal of RPD is to bring increased access to resources to support sustainable rural nonprofits, increase the engagement of funders in rural communities, and encourage effective collaboration on a regional scale.
