►Effective best practices to ensure greater fundraising success

►Specific advice to increase board participation in fundraising

►Ongoing techniques to overcome fundraising fears

►Fundraising strategies based on new resource-development trends relevant to their own organization.

The purpose for the network is to promote high standards of service and organizational effectiveness through an active and regular exchange of ideas. Participating individuals and organizations benefit by sharing program concepts and implementation plans, as well as administrative insight and communication strategies. Each organization is recognized as a 501(c)(3) by the IRS and serves a defined geographic area rather than a national focus.
