Grab a drink and tune in for our first-ever virtual Happy Hour! Members of Orr Group's senior leadership team will once again come together to talk philanthropy and discuss trends we’re seeing in the field today, the future of fundraising, and more.

In this webinar, we will revisit our perspectives we shared in early March about the key things impacting nonprofit organizations, such as economic trends, the stimulus package, fundraising, leadership, etc. and will discuss what has changed over the past 6 months, and what we can anticipate for the future ahead.

We hope you can join us!

This past month, Orr Group team members came together to participate in a card writing activity with Letters Against Isolation. LAI works with companies and individuals to create and send homemade cards to senior citizens who are quarantining across the country. LAI asked us to spread some joy to the residents of Arbor Terrace Mount Laurel, which provides assisted living and dementia care.

Below is a quick peek at the cards we sent to the Arbor Terrace Mount Laurel residents.
