Today’s Fundraising Truths That Took Me Years to Learn!
The AFP-GLAC Young Professionals Group invite all to attend this special speaker event.
Tired of sorting out the facts from the fantasy when it comes to fundraising techniques and methodologies? Pamela started in fundraising when very little formal training existed, which made for a lot of trial and error … and more error. After actively working in the field of fundraising for more than four decades, she’s learned what really makes a difference when it comes to bottom-line success in fundraising programs. She’ll share her short guide to fundraising success, and you’ll leave with practical – and proven – knowledge you can use the very next day to be a more effective fundraiser.
