NAYDO Academy Philanthropy School Fundamentals

Each fundamental provides an overview of a financial development area and is geared toward volunteers; frontline, program, membership, and branch staff; and staff new to financial development. If your role has changed or you need a refresher, the fundamentals are for you.  

2022 Fundamentals will be held online in the first quarter of 2022 so you can be better prepared for the NAYDO Conference, April 6-9 in Tampa.
