AFP Southern Colorado Proudly Announces
The 14th Annual Summit on Philanthropy
AFP Southern Colorado • Summit on Philanthropy
Virtual Conference • September 25, 2020 • 9AM-1:30PM
Featuring two outstanding keynote speakers, three breakout sessions, and the Southern Colorado Philanthropy Awards
COVID-19 has changed the way we all work! This is an understatement when it comes to fundraisers. As fundraisers we are all about building relationships and not being able to do that in person has made things more complicated. However, fundraisers in Southern Colorado and all over the country have taken on this new challenge and not only are working harder then before they are continuing to help fund the missions of their organizations. Missions that make the world a better place, for social justice, equity, hunger, homelessness, animals, the environment and so much more. We hope you will join us for this day of professional development and celebration of the job that flies under the radar but is full of vibrant change makers.
