Upcoming Programs

Do you know about Jason Lewis’s three lane fundraising approach and how to navigate the “messy middle lane” to develop the meaningful relationships that become the driving force behind successful fundraising? Join us for breakfast on Aug 8th to learn from this author and expert as we kick off the new year of programming. In September we'll talk about speaking skills for fundraisers, and shortly we will be announcing the panelists for the always popular Meet the Funders panel discussion in October.  For a full list of this year's programs click on the calendar link below.
