Get your Good on!
Well hello, Do-Gooder! We hope you’ll join us at our biggest-ever Goodness Matters, for two incredible days of learning and discussion in sunny Palm Springs. We’re packing a lot of Goodness into this year, from big, inspirational ideas to practical tips that will make your day-to-day easier.
You’ll hear from trendsetters and bold thinkers who are transforming their programs, and find out how to harness all the elements of Goodness including giving, volunteering and grants, to make big strides in your workplace and community. Our product experts will show you the latest features of our software and how you can put them to work for you. And we’ve beefed up our peer-to-peer sessions, too, so you’ll have even more time to swap ideas, share challenges and workshop best practices together. There’s a lot to get excited about!
Keynote Speaker Vu Le
Vu is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the Executive Director of Rainier Valley Corps, a nonprofit in Seattle with the mission of developing and supporting leaders of color to strengthen the capacity of communities-of-color-led nonprofits and foster collaboration between diverse communities to effect systemic change. He is insightful and hilarious and has a lot to say about how nonprofits and for-profits can — and must — work more closely to build the kind of society we all deserve (and how to fight the challenges that get in our way).
