September 9-10, 2021

Rocky Mountain Philanthropy Institute (RMPI) is AFP Colorado’s annual conference dedicated to bringing Colorado fundraising professionals and nonprofit staff together to learn, network, and rejuvenate their passion for service. 

What a fabulous conference and our first ever virtual conference!  Our chapter just wrapped up another successful Rocky Mountain Philanthropy Institute (RMPI) Conference. This year's theme was “We are Change Makers,” and timely topics around diversity, equity, and inclusion were explored to help you make lasting change in your community, within your organization, and to the very systems that our sector is uniquely poised to push back against.

One big highlight of the day was a keynote address from Trabian Shorters on Asset Framing.

We are grateful to have so many talented and sought-after professionals share their expertise with us as plenary and workshop speakers. Thank you to Tim Kachuriak, Nia Wassink, Brittny Wilson, and Emily Davis for creating thought-provoking sessions.  Thank you to workshop speakers: Tami Lack Crawford, Genevieve Laca, Lara Jakubowski, Abby Jarvis, Celina Maggi, Elvira Ramos, Maegan Vallejo, Cole Struhar, and Joshua Zmroczek.

Comments from 2020 Attendees on their favorite part of RMPI:

I liked that it was fast paced... you gotta keep the energy up when someone is just sitting at their desk. Reggie was cracking me up and he is also sort of reassuring - like I have seen him at so many events, it was like an old friend had us in hand and I could trust he would get us through.

The chance to hear from thought-leaders in fund-raising. Getting practical information about how to do our jobs better while also re-energizing myself for the day-to-day challenges.

I appreciate that the sessions aren't just "how tos" and skills based, but also based in sector level discussions, challenge and philosophies.

Thanks for ALL the intention, attention to details, breakouts, opportunities to learn really relevant content and to engage. Well done, Team RMPI 2020!

I loved the way you did the sponsor spotlights! Fabulous and I always enjoy Reggie Rivers.

Given the situation we're in with COVID19, I thought the conference was really good. It was tough sitting at the computer for that amount of time, but I don't think you can control that.

Presenters and Emcee were all outstanding. Their information and their energy was insightful and inspiring. A much different (and way better) conference than I expected or could have hoped for. Thank you for this informative and energizing day during a difficult time!
