"Developing Your Strategic Fundraising Plan was the best professional development course I have ever taken.
The program outline was detailed and easy to follow and the web Q&A's added an extra level of comfort and clarity when completing the course work. You won't be disappointed! Learning from Cathy's wealth of knowledge was worth every dollar."
