Event Details

Please join us for our 2014 Spring Institute with Simone Joyaux of Joyaux Associates and Tom Ahern of Ahern Communications. If you were at the 2013 spring Institute, you were wowed by Simone's approach to nonprofit management and board development. This spring, Simone will help you create a fund development plan.

Tom Ahern will then teach you how to communicate with donors to maximize your fund development plan, including how to create relationships with donors and what good donor communication looks like.
