Insights for Good #5
4/27/11 / David Kennedy
Summer is almost here and the whitewater rafting season is beginning so why not get in the spirit by coming to our next Insights for Good event?
It seems like forever ago that we last met, but we haven’t disappeared. Our next meetup for May is with cityWild. Our goal for the evening will be to help them market the rafting part of their organization (www.adventures.citywild.org).
Our next event will be Wednesday, May 18th. Same time (6:30 pm) same place (Common Grounds, Lodo).
To learn more about Insights for Good & this month’s nonprofit, to join the group, and to RSVP for the event, visit our Meetup page.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our first four groups – all of the nonprofits left with great ideas! And groups member have been providing great feedback as well.
As always, please extend this invite to others! Hope to see you there!
(PS – We’re already working on a June event too!)
More about cityWild:
cityWILD is a bold effort to bring the typically exclusive world of outdoor experiential education to a broad non-traditional audience: low-income youth of color. For the past ten years, cityWILD has been providing tuition-free, comprehensive experiential education programs for urban youth (10-18 years old) in northeast Denver. Its mission is to provide low income, culturally diverse youth with outdoor and environmental service learning opportunities that promote developmental themes of personal empowerment, leadership and community participation.
About Insights for Good:
Insights for Good was created by Corona Insights in our continued efforts to give back to the Denver community.
There is a lot of marketing talent in Denver – and there are a lot of great nonprofits that need great marketing talent. However, getting the two together isn’t always easy.
So what is Insights for Good?
Insights for Good is a gathering of local marketing professionals that want to give back to a local nonprofit while also networking with like-minded professionals.
How does it work? The first 15-20 minutes is like many networking events – introductions and conversation. Then the nonprofit will introduce themselves, give an overview of their challenges, and then the brainstorming and real interaction begins. The goal is to generate as many fresh insights as possible that the nonprofit can take away to further explore and build on.
There is no further commitment beyond the one night – just an evening of networking, brainstorming, and doing some good!
