Narrator's principal, Brian Brown, will be giving two presentations at the annual conference of the Colorado Nonprofit Association on Friday October 21. This is the premier nonprofit conference in the interior West each year; mark your calendars and join more than 800 other people to grow and improve together!

Presentation #1: Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics: The Truth about Fundraising in the Next Generation

What does it actually look like to successfully develop today's younger donors without abandoning the techniques that got you your current donor base? Explore what’s actually working for real organizations.

Presentation #2: Cocktails, Craft Beers, and Creating Community

The days of the nonprofit plus the solitary check-writing donor are nearly over. But incredible things can happen when nonprofits embrace a new (and old!) role as connectors of people.
