Virtual Philanthropy Conduit


Virtual Philanthropy Conduit brings the insights from philanthropy directly to the change agents who need it most. Virtual Philanthropy offers a range of resources to nonprofits, from podcasts with members of the philanthropic community who explain how would-be grant seekers can contact them for funding and what they need to say and do in order to be successful, to various tangible resources given straight from donors. Virtual Philanthropy Conduit takes this impact several steps forward by teaching real-world skills in an interactive hands-on approach, while connecting nonprofits and donors in a meaningful way.
