4. Fundraising Brown Bags
Fundraising Brown Bag sessions provide an opportunity for fundraising professionals (or not-yet professionals) to come together in a less structured free-flowing environment to share their lunch time and discuss topics that are relevant to them. All fundraising professionals are invited, such as individuals early in their professional fundraising career, individuals who may not yet belong to a professional fundraising organization or individuals who have never attended fee-based educational programs.
Other individuals may be seasoned fundraisers that are interested in the topic or who want to spend time with up-and-coming fundraisers.
