BEMIDJI, Minn. – A four-session course entitled Fundraising Campaign Training will be offered March 5, 12, 19 and 26 by the Bemidji State University Center for Research and Innovation.

Teaching the course is Deb McGregor-Pfleger, a private consultant possessing many years of experience working with non-profit organizations as well as for-profit entities.

“I am most excited about the fact that participants receive a one-one individual session following the training,” said McGregor-Pfleger. “This provides an opportunity to make sure each individual’s needs are met and that there is a plan in place for implementing all that has been learned.
