Join us on Wednesday, March 7 for a virtual seminar called "Building a Major Gifts Shop: Changing Perception" featuring David VanLone, VP of Major Gifts at the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas

Description: Long hours, high stress, little initial positive reinforcement and constantly breaking through new unforeseen barriers...sound like fun? Building a major gifts shop from the ground up is a big challenge to undertake. The presenter shares his experience and explains why this was the highlight of his career. Success means fulfilling new parts of an organization's mission and the potential to change the world.
