Writing e-newsletters is a time-consuming process. We get it.

Sometimes, it might even feel like you’re spinning your wheels with decreased open and clickthrough rates! But you know that keeping your donors informed is vital to the long-term success of your organization, so you plow through and hit ‘send.’


In our new writer’s workshop, "Not Your Mama’s e-Newsletter," we’ll help you find a better way!

Join Fundraising Coach Cara and Nonprofit Founder (and Writer Extraordinaire) Jennings Wright for three live sessions this August to learn and apply a manageable approach to writing e-newsletters that engage today’s donors. 

This course is limited to only 30 participants, so sign up today!
