Speaker: Vu Le

This year, the Frederick Nonprofit Summit is honored to welcome Vu Le, nationally recognized blogger of nonprofitwithballs.com and his newest blog, NonprofitAF.

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. NonprofitAF brutally examines the joys and frustrations of the nonprofit sector, challenges established norms and provokes discussions. Vu’s passion is to make the world better while recognizing the humor in daily tasks. In his time working in the nonprofit sector, 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.
