Great addition to the professional development field for grants!
Fundraising HayDay is a wonderful addition to the professional development space for grant professionals/grant writers. Whether brand new or more seasoned, this podcast will provide best practices as well as context with some real world experiences.
Thrilled to see this gap in fundraising podcasts be addressed by co-hosts Amanda and Kimberly. Hard to believe they created a podcast focused on best practices *and* have a dose of humor to keep listeners engaged throughout.
I can’t wait for season 2!
Informative and Fun
Fundraising HayDay fills the gap for the lack of podcasts about fundraising and grant writing. Amanda and Kimberly are very knowledgeable experts with years of experience and generous with that knowledge. You can tell they truly love and care about the fundraising profession.
