2022 Rural Philanthropy Days is Coming to Ridgway! 

Get excited for the unique opportunity to meet one-on-one with funders, participate in professional development opportunities and network with other  community leaders in the region. The San Juan region is comprised of Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel counties.

We are working to recruit members of our local RPD Steering Committee who will work together to shape the event which is expected to bring together over 40 statewide grantmakers and over 200 regional community and nonprofit leaders in the region. The Steering Committee of around 20 local leaders will serve alongside statewide funders and CRC to plan the conference.

RPD brings together over 200 nonprofit professionals, grantmakers, community leaders, distinguished speakers, and elected officials to exchange knowledge and expand professional networks at the Heart of Colorado conference. The conference comes to the Northwest every four years, and local organizations come from Gunnison, Hinsdale, Montrose, Ouray, and San Miguel counties.

RPD conference activities are collaboratively coordinated by a regional steering committee comprised of rural nonprofit, government, and business leaders, Community Resource Center, and local foundation staff.
