Get Over Your Fear of Fundraising With Deb Dale and Angie Smith!
June 3, 2014
6:00-7:30 p.m.

Open to the Public - FREE!

We Haven’t Lost A Volunteer Yet!--In an era of cut backs and belt tightening everywhere in the U.S., more and more nonprofits are understanding the importance of raising unrestricted private funds. Over 80% of monies raised in this country come from individual donations ~ not businesses or the government. Learning to clearly and concisely ask for what you want is a benefit in any profession, not just in fundraising for nonprofits. With a good plan, an understanding of why and how nonprofits raise funds, and interactive role play, you WILL get over your fear ~ and have fun!
