"From introductions to foundation representatives at a 'Meet the Funders' panel, to ways to amplify the message on our mission at a branding class, The Nonprofit Center opens the door to a range of resources. The professional development opportunities provide practical, timely, and, in some cases, eye-opening expert guidance on ways to deepen donor relationships. I always come away from the classes with a well-defined to-do list that refines our fundraising efforts. To state the obvious: we are in a highly competitive environment for dollars/donors. Essentially every nonprofit is in the business of improving the community; each using different means to achieve this same end. The Nonprofit Center hands us the tools to best leverage what is unique to our work." -Ellen Saint Clair, Director of Development, Children's Village
