Tune in Saturday at 10 AM to DDI on Autism - 103.9 FM

Nonprofits, for the most part, have been hit hard by our nation’s economic woes. We are facing challenges in terms of donations, staffing, government and foundation funding, and organizational structure. Still, we persevere, guided by a compelling mission to do good work always.

My conversation tomorrow is with DDI Director of Development, Jean Smith. Tune in as we unpack the real keys to effective fundraising. Learn how leadership, vision, and the skills of an engaged, committed, impassioned constituency serve to create relationships that become the partnerships that ensure future sustainability.

***But you may ask: how can I make a difference quickly, right here and right now? Come out for this year’s Walk in the Park (Next Sunday!!). The event promises to be great fun!  Please find details below and be sure to bring friends and family!
