When:  Sep 9, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (CT)
Program Title:
Zen and the Art of Fundraising

We often learn about the stages of getting a gift, best practices, and the latest marketing techniques. Brovey shows us that they go part way. She shows that to continue on the path to success, we must possess other traits or qualities, which she calls pillars. These 8 pillars can be honed and strengthened over time.
