    Fund development is imperative to the sustainability of a community service organization. It is crucial that organizations develop innovative strategies to reach out to their donors and supporters so as to foster a culture of giving with a focus on the mission and the deliverables of the organization.

    Join us for a program that is designed to acquire a better understanding of key fundraising dynamics, a grasp of essential strategic choices, roles and responsibilities of Board members in fund development. Participants will be able to embrace these roles with less apprehension, and even less confusion, related to fund development.
