Virtual Catapult Institute: A Conversation with Vu Le

September 25, 2020

11:00:00 AM - 12:00:00 PM


Don't miss this one-hour virtual conversation with nationally recognized blogger, Vu Le, and Grunin Foundation President, Jeremy Grunin.

While we were originally scheduled to have Vu Le for a workshop on Friday, September 25, unfortunately the pandemic had other plans. We are working to have Vu in the flesh in 2021; however, in the meantime we didn't want you to miss out on hearing from him. So, we've switched gears and will be bringing Vu to you virtually!

Join us for an hour-long conversation with Vu and our very own, Jeremy Grunin. This is one you don't want to miss! They'll be delving into a lot of important topics in regards to fundraising, funding practices, social justice and more! It will be a precursor to when we can have Vu on the East Coast sometime next year.

About Presenter

Vu Le (“voo lay”) is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the former Executive Director of RVC, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities.

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.

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 at, formerly
