Coffee Talk: Staying Connected with Scholarship Donors

Fostering good relationships with Scholarship Donors is an important part of administrating scholarships, but is often an area where expectations get misaligned. Listen to this coffee talk where we spoke about some common ways of communicating with donors and how to use your SLM site to do it efficiently - and with personal touch!

We encourage you to continue the conversation from this session on Compass - A Foundant Community.
