A Story of Local Giving
"I am so thankful for these sessions through the Nonprofit Leadership Series. I love that they are free--that means a lot in the nonprofit world! All of the sessions I've attended have helped me learn new strategies to keep me on top of my game, and everyone who has presented on the topics are always friendly and helpful."
