ALA students can earn a maximum of five credits through webinars, though students are welcome to view as many as they choose.

While a big part of fundraising is, of course, getting donations, what you do after you receive a gift should be an equally important part of your development strategy. Presenting in this webinar will be Ann Fitzgerald, president of AC Fitgerald. Ann has decades of experience and serves as a valuable fundraising advisor to many organizations, including several of Atlas Network's partners. Join her on October 17th to learn about the necessity of post-donation donor relations.
