2013 Fundamentals of Fundraising

On October 11, thirty participants successfully completed the 2013 Fundamentals of Fundraising program held at Dallas Baptist University.  While most reside in the North Texas area, this year's two-day intensive workshop welcomed students from Houston and Washington State who saw this as an important step toward a successful development career.  Special thanks go to sponsors Pursuant, Thompson & Knight and Dallas Baptist University.

Planning will soon begin for next year's course under the leadership of Fort Worth AFP member Carolyn Phillips.  So stay tuned for more news to come.
