Development Project

By: Rebekah Bjork | November 20, 2015

As a volunteer, Michael contributed greatly to research in support of the generous supporters of MNHS. Michael worked with an MNHS staff researcher, to help us better understand the backgrounds and philanthropy of our supporters. Michael also assisted in the organization of development officer history - by reviewing our existing files system and improving our access to information about past fund-raising campaign, events and donor recognition.
