About this AFP – Advancement Northwest “Essentials of Fundraising” Session
Learn about  fundraising in the nonprofit sector from two successful mid-career professionals. Get answers to your burning questions about career paths in fundraising, and how to get past the “Catch 22” of needing the experience to get the job, but needing the job to get the experience. You will leave with tips and tools that you can immediately apply to your professional growth.
