  • AFP-CNY January 2023 Luncheon - What's So Funny 'bout PR, Marketing, and Fundraising?

    No one wears just one hat these days.

    In our fundraising roles, we often lean on members of the Public Relations and Marketing team to help with campaigns and messaging. But, what do we do if we wear those hats, too?  Join Joanna Jewett from Arc of Onondaga on Thursday, January 19th for a discussion about the marriage of PR, Marketing, and Fundraising. Bring your questions, and let’s find the answers together!
