Business West: "Those who raise funds for a living say the competition for people’s dollars and energies is more intense than ever — but they’re not seeing an increase in the total number of donors. Officials with the local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals say that’s reason enough to honor those who do give. National Philanthropy Day provides just such an opportunity — as well as the potential to inspire others to get involved. When fundraisers from across the Pioneer Valley come together for National Philanthropy Day this month, they will be doing much more than honoring devoted volunteers. They’ll also be cultivating new ones."
