In session 8, it was time to spread some hope with the Community First Foundation. Special guest Kelly Dunkin, President & CEO of Community First Foundation and a long-time Colorado community leader, joined us to discuss how the Foundation was responding to the crisis and supporting recovery efforts. We also addressed how we can continue to confront racial inequality and injustice while coping with COVID-19.Some topics we covered were:

  • How Kelly believed the pandemic and upcoming elections would likely impact CO Gives Day in December
  • How have each of the different communities responded: donors, non-profits, and nonprofit advisors
  • How Community First was fending in the midst of strategic planning

We'd love to hear about your thoughts and experiences. Please join the discussion below.
