Education Session:
Engage Marginalized Donor Segments to Increase Revenue

With the demographic changes of this century, new practices and strategies are need for new outcomes. Kathleen Loehr has provided over her three decades career, master-level leadership coaching through-out the nonprofit and government sector.
