The Countdown to Closing Year-End Gifts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As a fund development professional, what creative strategies can you implement to ensure contributions are received? How can you help your donors understand they are part of a greater solution in their communities? How can you create a link to your nonprofit’s mission?
