Your organization’s annual report fills a void that a 990 can’t. If done well, it shows your supporters and community leaders the impact you’ve had. They can play a critical role in seeking corporate and foundation funding, as well as your overall communications strategy.

And, if you follow our system of turning your organization’s annual report into a gratitude report, you’ll produce the kind of report that not only stewards and informs donors beautifully but raises revenue as well.

In Your Nonprofit Annual (Gratitude) Report | Basics & More™, over the course of four weeks, you’ll learn how to create your own “gratitude” report on time and on budget — one that always keeps your donor front and center. Early Bird pricing ends today. Learn more and enroll.
