Let's talk about the ways you can identify, qualify, cultivate, solicit, and steward future and current donors.  This is an informal session that will draw on the wisdom of those in the room, and leave you with some new ways to enhance your relationship management and case for support.  Beginners to those in the field for a while are welcome! We can learn from each other.

Bring your fundraising collateral if you'd like some feedback- solicitation letters/emails/annual reports/thank you letters....
