“Attending the NEDRA Conference was a great opportunity. I was able to build my confidence, fill my research toolkit, and meet many colleagues who I can now call upon. Thank you to NEDRA and to Heather for this gift for my career!” says Becca Elwin of the Conservation Law Foundation, one of this year’s recipients of the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarship, awarded to professionals with less than two years of experience in fundraising.
We need YOU to help NEDRA meet our matching gift goal and cement the future of the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarship for many years to come!
The scholarship allows recipients to attend NEDRA's Annual Conference, Research Basics Bootcamp, and provides a year of NEDRA membership.
A generous donor will DOUBLE every gift NEDRA receives for the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarship up to a total of $5,000 by May 1, 2015. (We are at 91% of our goal, help us close the remaining gap!)
Earlier this month, NEDRA awarded the second year of Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarships to two deserving newcomers to prospect research: Stephanie Cavagnuolo, prospect researcher for Oxfam America in Jamaica Plain and Becca Elwin, development associate for research and prospecting at the Conservation Law Foundation in Boston.
Your contribution to the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarship will strengthen the prospect research/management/analytics community by supporting its newest members, and honoring Heather's legacy.
