Innovative Approaches from Local Federations
About the Blog
As the digital landscape becomes increasingly more focused on exchanging knowledge and educational resources, Federations need a way to share and learn from local success stories.
We curate the best fundraising practices and success stories across the Federation system and beyond, and interview the people behind these fascinating case studies! This blog is an opportunity to share insights with each other on what is and isn’t working in this new era of virtual fundraising.
Each post directly corresponds to a webinar or meetup, so be sure to check out our calendar of events.
