Northwest Rural Philanthropy Days will take place on Sept. 27-29 in Craig. Rural Philanthropy Days is a partnership between the Community Resource Center which works with nonprofit organizations, the Anschutz Family Foundation and statewide grantmakers to bring together local nonprofits, business leaders, government representatives and some of the state’s most influential funders. This opportunity only occurs once every four years in the Northwest region.
“HRC will host a meeting in August to determine what agencies are participating in philanthropy days, what funding agencies are seeking, and to explore opportunities for Meeker agency partnerships/joint efforts in future projects,” wrote Dondi Glasscock.
