10 WAYS TO ENGAGE YOUR SUPPORTERS, MEMBERS AND DONORS

Good public relations leads to engaging your association, nonprofit, charity members and supporters. It’s also critical towards ensuring donors and sponsors of charity organizations are aware of the good but often left unknown work they do.

If your association or non-profit organisation is looking to build awareness and relationships with MPs, Senators or influential policy makers, drop me a line.
