Two veteran nonprofit local news publishers will talk about how to approach and work with community and national foundations, cultivating major individual donors, and how to manage a successful "annual appeal" with smaller donors. This session will be geared toward new nonprofit publishers and those thinking of launching a nonprofit news organization, but all are welcome.
