Make plans to join us on Tuesday, December 4th, as we welcome VAFRE member Loren Hatcher and special guest Debbie Johnston to discuss some methods for stewarding donors.

Your donors should never have suspicious minds about their philanthropic investments in your organization. Loren and Debbie will share about their linked experiences as a fundraiser and philanthropist through the relationship they’ve built and the missions they’ve served. Open up your heart and mind for an interactive conversation about the strategies, tactics and stories utilized in stewarding donors.
