Nonprofit Utopia Takes To YouTube to Provide Free Fundraising Help for Nonprofits

Successful fundraising includes more than developing a strong case for support and writing the "perfect" grant proposal.  The depth and quality of your relationships with funders can make the difference between getting funded or not.  Most importantly, in this day and age, the relationships your organization has can make the difference in your organization's ability to keep its doors open. With this in mind, Valerie F. Leonard, the Founder of Nonprofit Utopia, LLC, will host an interactive, livestreamed presentation to take viewers through the entire cycle of donor cultivation, from prospect research to stewarding their gifts. The presentation will be aired on Nonprofit Utopia Live, on Thursday, October 29, from 10:00 am until 11:00 am CDT.
