Healthcare Agencies

Your nonprofit healthcare agency provides important services in the community.  Agency staff, volunteers and partners put a great deal of care into services to bring about positive outcomes for your clients. 
To keep up or expand your services, fundraising, in the form of government grants and donations, is a necessary and relied upon portion of income.  The development process also gives connection and meaning to those who are served, those who serve, and all of those who give.
