Connections to the Cause


Testimonial I attended The Alliance ODASSCE course in 2018 and presented at the National Donor Summit in 2019 and met some of the amazing staff members. I was amazed by the opportunities for learning and networking at these events. After attending the summit, my desire for excellence of donor management within our organization increased. As a result, both new and improved protocols/policies and order sets have been developed within the organization. The Alliance website has been a wonderful available reference. There are endless education opportunities and I’m frequently using the community resource toolbox.
