Philanthropy MA partners can sign up for an unlimited number of research sessions in the Foundation Directory Online at the Pro Level, a particularly robust resource as it is international in scope and provides data on nearly a quarter million funding institutions.

Join us for this session with Georganna Woods, our research specialist, who for nearly 20 years has been helping nonprofits and funders address their research needs. Georganna will provide an introduction to the database; offer tips and tricks to make your sessions more productive; and invite current users to share their successes and present their challenges for troubleshooting. Come ready with your questions!

If you are not (yet) a partner, you are welcome to join us for a glimpse into this critical research tool.

Fundraising Fridays are monthly hour-long “coffee talks” facilitated by thought leaders from the social sector. These discussion groups, held at 9:00 am the first Friday of each month, are free and open to any and all nonprofit professionals and volunteers interested in fundraising and development issues (EDs, DDs, development staff, volunteer leaders, etc.). Participants will come away with a greater understanding of the topic at hand and connections to nonprofit peers who share similar interests and concerns.

Registration closes at 2 pm on October 6th. Please view the Zoom delivery information below.
