A lifelong pursuit
Whether we work in professional fundraising or pursue our causes outside the workday, society counts on each of us to give back in our own way. And fundraising experience imparts valuable job skills, regardless of our career track: everything from relationship-building and accountability to persuasive communications and time management.
By introducing students to the world of development, D-SIP builds philanthropic habits and professional competencies that last a lifetime.
