Speaker: Cynthia M. Adams
Cynthia Adams has been a fundraiser for over 40 years, mainly in Alaska, working directly for nonprofits and as a fundraising consultant. Her life’s work has been to help create opportunities for all nonprofit organizations to access the wealth of grant opportunities across the U.S. and throughout the world. GrantStation was conceived from this basic philosophy, and though it is a small company, Ms. Adams says it operates much more like a nonprofit organization, serving its thousands of Members with resources to help make their work easier.
