AFP Chapter Office 

Rocky Mountain Philanthropy Institute 2017 

For more than 25 years, the AFP Colorado Chapter has offered nonprofit and development professionals an engaging and informative conference, the Rocky Mountain Philanthropy Institute (RMPI).

Mission ISpossible! Fundraisers face many challenges and barriers to reaching their goals, but they do this work for good reasons! RMPI helps professional fundraisers achieve their goals by giving them the contacts and skills necessary to re-energize and charge forward.

The conference features keynote speaker, Marc Pitman. His decades of fundraising experience will give conference attendees a deep dive into The Fear of Asking. Pitman, an international leadership coach and fundraising trainer helps nonprofit leaders get excited about asking for money. With a passion that's made people call him the "Johnny Appleseed of fundraising," Marc believes fundraising is all about leadership. Fundraising affects everything from mission to board governance to marketing. So he is committed to making it ridiculously easy for everyone - board members, volunteers, and nonprofit staff - to get fundraising training.
