"Gratitude: The Art of Stewardship and Saying Thanks."

Thursday, December 14, 2017
10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Showing gratitude to your donors and supporters is one of the most important elements of any nonprofit's fundraising efforts.

What is stewardship and how do you plan for it? Often overlooked, stewardship can make a big impact on an organization’s fundraising success. Join TVNPA this month as we explore how stewardship plays a role in fundraising and why it is so important to include in your development plan strategies.

TVNPA is pleased to present a special panel discussion this month, moderated by Kathy Young and comprised of our very own founding board members who will share how they express thanks and appreciation to those who support their causes!
