We will discover ways to find new people who are passionate about your cause and ways to engage current donors. Discussion will include ways to build a repeatable process to help manage your fundraising communications in a multi-media world and ways to engage current employees, board members, and volunteers to perform the work. We will end the session by making asking for money easy so it becomes your favorite part of your job.
