2021 Frederick Nonprofit Summit Speaker

Frederick is honored to welcome Vu Le, nationally recognized blogger with his newest blog, NonprofitAF.

NonprofitAF candidly examines the joys and frustrations of the nonprofit sector, challenges established norms, and provokes discussions. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it.

Known for his no-BS approach, irreverent sense of humor, and love of unicorns, Vu has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts. He is a writer, speaker, blogger, and former executive director of Rainier Valley Corps, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice. His talk will stretch your current thinking and bring a different perspective to nonprofit management and governance. Vu finds truth in jest and allows participants to laugh with him while learning.
