The Northeast and Heart of Colorado Rural Philanthropy Days conferences, previously scheduled for June 9-11 & September 23-25, are being postponed due to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis. 

The decision to postpone the conferences was led by the local leadership, and while this was a very difficult decision to make, we believe that it is in the best interest of our communities.

We know that now more than ever rural communities are relying on the critical services of our local nonprofits, community organizations, and governments, and we remain committed to creating a space where we all can connect, learn, collaborate, and access the resources we need.

Interested in getting involved in your region?

Consider serving on a Regional Leadership Committee! Our Regional Leadership Committees (RLC) are a key outcome of the Rural Philanthropy Days program, building networks, partnerships and increased access to education and opportunities across rural Colorado. Each of the eight Committees build unique opportunities within their region in order to best meet the needs of their communities during the years between RPD conferences.

Benefits of Leadership Committee participation:

  • Expand your Professional Network
  • Enhance and Inform Regional Opportunities
  • Develop Leadership Skills
  • Gain Access to Professional Development Opportunities
