 Prepare your board members and staff leaders for the roles they can play in the fundraising success of your nonprofit by inviting them to attend our free Basics for Nonprofit Leaders: Fundraising Concerns workshop Monday, June 23 from 4-5:30 pm here at Central Library. Jacinta L. Witherspoon, Director of Resource Development for Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis, will lead the group. Some 20  have signed up so far, so contact me soon to save a place or to inquire about parking. Thanks to AFP-STLOUIS for cosponsoring this event.
