Webinar: Maximize Year-End Fundraising

Well, we’re halfway through October, folks! If you can believe it, Halloween is less than two weeks away and before you know it every mall in the country will be blasting “Deck the Halls.” Most of you know what this means: year-end fundraising is upon us! Dun dun dun. Did you know that nonprofits make most of their money between October and December? Yep – a strong year-end campaign can make or break a nonprofit’s budget for the New Year. But don’t go running in fear! With a little help, you still have time to make 2014 the best year ever.
