Nonprofit Juggling: People, Perspectives and Priorities!


Leadership Council for Nonprofits is very proud and excited to take ownership of the Securing the Future Conference and bring in a top notch keynote: Vu Le, author of the popular blog, “Nonprofit with Balls”.

Nonprofits have a lot of balls to juggle:

  • Running effective programming
  • Ensuring board members are engaged
  • Finding “freebies”
  • Even meeting payroll each month.

Meanwhile, priorities have changed.

What balls do they still need to juggle?

What are the new juggling skills they need to have in order to be successful?

More on Vu Le

Vu Le (“voo lay”)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.

Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a show about nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.
