Session Description:

How does marketing affect fundraising and vice-versa? Are there differences in how you market a nonprofit organization vs. a for-profit company? What are the biggest issues facing nonprofit marketing today and in the future?

Join us for a lively discussion of these topics and more with three area professionals who have a depth of knowledge and broad variety of experience in nonprofits and marketing. This program is being offered as a coordinated effort between the AFP Greater Austin Chapter and the Women Communicators of Austin.
