Development Professionals

We invite you to join other Development Professionals for support, networking, ideas, and fellowship in our monthly conference calls every first Thursday of the month at 10:00 AM Eastern Time.


For the next two months, UMA will be presenting “Engage Your Board and Leadership in Fundraising Strategies!”  This is a special two-part presentation of content from the previously scheduled “Spring Philanthropy Summit.”

Cultivating a fundraising mindset among your board and leadership team is a critical step in implementing a strong culture of philanthropy. In this two-part online workshop you will discover ways to engage your board along with your leadership team and arm them with tools, resources, and new skills to yield measurable results.

This special workshop is presented as a benefit of UMA membership. Fundraising teams, leadership, and trustees are encouraged to participate.
