Price:

Join UAC for Coalition U: Engaging New Donors on Monday, March 24 12pm-2pm at Pierce College. Too often nonprofits put too much emphasis on different ways of saying "donate now," and not enough time polishing the context and incorporating a personal touch to secure donations. Engaging new donors and retaining your current funding base requires more than letters, emails and reporting -- it takes careful planning, outreach and follow up. Our panel of fundraising experts will share valuable insight on how you can increase your funding!
