Luann FeehanCEO, Nonprofit Connect

Last night we had a virtual donor experience that almost all attendees stayed on for the whole time. . . We had a soft ask, but weren’t expecting to raise money as a direct result. Well, we raised about $6k! Thank you, thank you, thank you for guiding us along this journey!

Thank you, Lori. We all have a song, a dream, a dance, a prayer, which wants to be sung, and dreamed, and danced, and prayed. Your work's purpose is to assist people in discovering that.
