How does an appeal letter edit work?

Let me tell you about Louise. Louise lives alone in her own home. Her children live out of town. Her income is enough to cover her monthly expenses.

But sometimes she forgets to pay her bills.

Top 10 reasons to pay fundraising staff more

Recently, a friend of mine, who formerly had the title of Assistant Director of Development, was hired as a Development Manager. She’s got tons of experience and has raised TONS of money.
