Success Strategies for Colorado Nonprofits
January 2014

Happy New Year!  

It has been a year since I took leadership at the Community Resource Center and what a year it has been.  The word that comes to mind when describing 2013 is perseverance.  Staff, board, volunteers, funders and our state-wide partners alike persevered in offering quality programming across the state, building nonprofit capacity and thus strengthening communities across Colorado.  As we head into the unknown of 2014, the opportunities that CRC has to continue the good work that we started 33 years ago are immense.  I look forward to seizing those opportunities and working with you all along the way.
