Community Foundation for Mississippi’s Events and Administration Manager Sandy Quinn was recently surprised during her weekly staff meeting by Sandra Hodge, Alliance Chief Program Officer, for completing our Emerging Leaders: Fundraising Executives program.
The program offers both in-person and self-paced learning and through a high-quality, renowned curriculum with experts and leaders from a variety of nonprofit, philanthropic and public sectors, prepares and develops nonprofit professionals into innovative fundraisers for their organization to capture the necessary funds for long-term sustainability.
“I learned a lot about the Alliance and the resources they provide throughout this process,” Quinn said. “Throughout this program, I saw how connections and relationships are important. I was face-to-face with some of Mississippi’s biggest fundraisers creating ripple effects in the community. It was a pleasure to meet experts and see how they are all impacting the state and making it better as a whole.”
As we dive into the festive spirit of December, I’d like to take a moment to reflect over the extraordinary year the Mississippi Alliance of Nonprofits and Philanthropy has had. This year has been nothing short of remarkable, marked by many changes and firsts. As I reflect on the transformative journey of 2023, it is impossible not to acknowledge the exceptional foresight of our founder, Sammy Moon.
