Zoom Meeting


Uncertainty seems to be the only “guarantee” in our world today. Regardless of the organization you represent, your size, or your mission, how your organization adapts its fundraising practices could have a significant impact on achieving your organization’s mission in the years ahead. Join the University of Illinois Foundation's Meg Cline for an interactive presentation and discussion on strategies you might employ to virtually engage with your donor community while also discussing how the newly signed CARES Act may present charitable planning opportunities for donors to your organization. A Zoom Meeting link will be provided by e-mail to registrants 5/14/2020.
