Posted by GVT Admin on Dec 16, 2022 10:45:00 AM

If there is one thing that all non-profit organizations will agree on, it is that donors are the backbone of any successful social service organization. Donors enable human services to turn ideas into reality, achieve goals, and work for various societal causes.
