Two Important Events for Fundraisers

It’s hard to believe we are already closing in on the summer months. Our team has been buzzing with new opportunities to connect outdoors, socially distanced around large conference room tables, and of course, virtually. Connection, like fresh air, water and food, is vital to our well-being. It is also central to our profession as fundraisers and I’m thrilled that the next month will give us these valuable opportunities to do just that:
