Welcome to Southwest Colorado Rural Philanthropy Days

*Thank you to Tim Walsworth for this beautiful photo

Thank you to everyone who made Southwest Rural Philanthropy Days a great success in 2010! We are working to update our website with new information.

Southwest Rural Philanthropy Days (RPD) is a collaborative program that builds excellence among the nonprofit and social service agencies that support our communities. It also brings financial support and professional development opportunities to community, arts, and environmental organizations in our region of southwest Colorado, including the counties of: Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma, and San Juan.

The event features nonprofit development workshops and networking opportunities that convene representatives of foundations and nonprofits from the Denver Metro area with local foundations and government leaders for three days of capacity building workshops and funder roundtables. This event, coordinated in collaboration with Community Resource Center (CRC), allows grant seekers from our region to build partnerships with foundations based on the front range of Colorado.

The next RPD event will be held from June 11-13, 2014 in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
