    About the Webinar

    Whether you're a one-person show or part of a larger team, your best work will flow from a coordinated fundraising approach.  Annual fund, major gift and capital or comprehensive campaign programs are all mutually reinforcing, but without good planning and integration you might be sub-optimizing your results.  In this session, we'll discuss how sound resource development planning can advance your organization's fundraising outcomes.
