Development Guild January Update

Posted January 2, 2020


We hope this finds our readers well and surviving the wintry weather. At the start of a new year, we wanted to share what kept us busy at the close of 2019, including completed searches for Executive Directors in the DC-area and Boston, a fascinating discussion with Candid (the newly merged Foundation Center and GuideStar) about fundraising and data, and a busy conference season. 
On behalf of all of us at Development Guild DDI, thank you for your continued interest and support!
