11:45 am - 1:00 pm   


Join AFP Colorado for an afternoon of virtual networking and positive stories of success! Over the last six months, non-profits pivoted and adapted to uncertainty, a new way of business, and a different social landscape. Hear from your peers about the ways they prevailed under the unique circumstances and found success furthering their mission. We hope you will engage with us as we discuss industry success stories and new trends that could be the future of philanthropy.
