DENVER, Apr 27, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- On Thursday, May 13, U.S. Bank in
Denver will present author Paul Light of the Brookings Institute and New York
University as keynote speaker for an educational seminar for nonprofit executive
directors and board members across Colorado. The seminar is planned to help
nonprofit organizations create and sustain higher performance.
"Improving Nonprofit Performance: The Case for Capacity Building and a Strategy
To Go With It," takes place from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 13 in the
Seawell Ballroom at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA), located at
14th and Curtis Streets in Denver. Light, author of Pathways to Nonprofit
Excellence and Making Nonprofits Work, will draw from a just completed,
ground-breaking study on nonprofit capacity-building across the nation.
"This seminar will focus on what nonprofits have been doing to achieve and
sustain higher performance and what works and what doesn't," said Linda Tinney,
vice president of community development for U.S. Bank in Colorado. "Nonprofit
leaders and board members will learn how to create the capacity needed to
improve their organization's odds of success in this time of economic
uncertainty and increased scrutiny."
This is the fifth in U.S. Bank's seminar series for nonprofits. Past seminars
have provided information and solutions on fund raising, targeted marketing, the
economy, and strategic collaboration. The seminar series is in partnership with

Organizations, Colorado Nonprofit Development Center, Colorado Planned Giving
Roundtable, Community Resource Center and Metro Volunteers. The seminar is
funded by a grant to Metro Volunteers from the U.S. Bancorp Foundation.
