Development Roundtable: Women's History Month- Women in Fundraising and Philanthropy

March 9th 2021 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Fee $ 10.00



Colorado Nonprofit Association hosts hour-long peer-to-peer discussions every Tuesday morning at 9 AM on topics in evaluation, volunteer engagement, new-to-nonprofit-work, communications, fundraising, and more! As useful as it is to host training sessions with subject matter experts on specific principles and practices, we know the power of learning from one another in a casual setting. So we offer this time every Tuesday morning for people doing the work to come together and learn from one another, support each other and build relationships across regions, missions, and titles. All are welcome!   


Join Colorado Nonprofit Association and AFP SOCO as we celebrate Women's History Month with Colleen LaFontaine, Director of Development at The Women’s Foundation of Colorado as she shares her own story, insights on women in philanthropy, and women as the changing face of philanthropy. There will be time for Q & A and conversation, too. 




  • Free for members
  • $10.00 for non-members
