The Rural Action Network® (RAN) works to build nonprofit capacity, foster relationships, and regional collaboration which leads to increased grant dollars awarded to rural communities. The goals of RAN are to: 

1) Convene a network of change-makers across the nonprofit ecosystem to tackle persistent issues in rural Colorado. 

2) Develop & cultivate rural leadership to more effectively lead within their organizations and communities. 

3) Align and increase the giving of philanthropy with rural nonprofits to support thriving and just communities across rural Colorado.
