FootSTEPS Conference 2012
We had a fabulous turnout for FootSTEPS 2012: Ideas for Impact on April 3, 2012. This interactive conference, designed to be a “day of development for development professionals” provided information, resources, tips, and tools to over 50 Arizona nonprofits.
Some background about the conference... As you may know, we had a tremendous response to our 2011 FootSTEPS Fund program. We received over 100 applications from Arizona nonprofit organizations. As the grant requests came pouring in, we realized we just had to do something for every organization that applied for a grant. And so we created FootSTEPS: Ideas for Impact, a free training and professional resource day packed with information to help Arizona nonprofit organizations “take the next steps” in their ongoing development and communication initiatives.
The day was a lot of fun for us and we are delighted to have had this opportunity to work with our friends (both old and new) in the nonprofit community. Thank you to all who helped make it a great day!
