“I am so grateful for the scholarship to Planet Philanthropy. I needed just five more hours of continuing education for my CFRE application, and the conference put me over the top. I attended my first conference in Sarasota in 2008 and look forward to supporting next year’s conference as it returns to Sarasota. I volunteered this year, and it was nice to be useful while taking advantage of the programs at the same time. Great representation from our chapter! Thank you for the opportunity to participate.”
Barb Lewis, Scholarship recipient.
