"As a newcomer to advancement, Fundraising Day WI was a great place to jump-start my professional development. Not only was I able to network with other professionals, I also got to hear from experts like Penelope Burke. Penelope’s talk on Donor-Centered Fundraising changed the way we steward our donors, resulting in improved donor retention and a stronger sense of community”

Fundraising Day WI Scholarship Recipient, 2017
