Anytime is a great time for at least one appeal letter (maybe more). If you’re making an important contribution to your community, many others will want to be part of that! The idea is to ask community members to invest in your organization’s vision and results.

If you’re writing online or printed appeals, purchase this webinar-on-demand to learn today’s best practices.
