FUNDRAISING: IT’S EASIER THAN YOU THINK
On November 9, 2013, Kim Klein, an internationally known speaker and author, gave a free fundraising talk to League and other non-profit folks at Mills College. The workshop covers the basic principles for creating workable fundraising structure and how to feel more comfortable asking for money. It was, as advertized, fast paced, practical and inspiring. The slides of the talk are posted here. LWVFundraisingisEasierthanyouThink
