Working Together to Strengthen Community

When:  Oct 4, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM (PT)
Associated with  AFP BC, Okanagan Chapter
To be effective at building community, the bridges between diverse groups of individuals must be strong especially between charities. We must examine many of our philosophies and practices to see if they facilitate or hinder the sense of collaboration. How do we fundraise without perpetuating the Nonprofit Hunger Games? Together we are stronger and so is our community. We will have time for questions and answers following Vu’s presentation.


Special Guest Speaker: Vu Le
Vu Le (voo lay) is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the Executive Director of Rainier Valley Corps, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities. Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a show about nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.
