"It's a really unique opportunity because it does bring together those regional funders, and then those Front Range funders that fund (across the state) but maybe haven't been down here recently," Tiffany Brodersen tells the Durango Herald.

Brodersen is the co-chair of Rural Philanthropy Days, a three-day conference that runs Wednesday through Friday in Durango.

The purpose of the event, hosted by Community Resource Center America, is to connect area nonprofits with major funders on the Front Range, in this case, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Colorado Health Foundation.

"So many of our nonprofits do such great work, but they're limited by the funding," says Brodersen.

"And so to increase their funding just increases the impact they're making for our community, which is so terrific."

More than 250 nonprofits from across the region are participating in the conference, which will feature panels and workshops on everything from "decolonizing philanthropy" to a walking tour of two towns to a look at rural agriculture.

About 70 funders from foundations on the Front Range will be in attendance.
