ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dozens of people showed up for tips on how to conduct fundraising for non-profits during this shaky economy. Nearly 30 people attended the seminar sponsored by the Albany Chamber of Commerce Thursday.

Dr. Steve Batson told directors and board members of non profit agencies that their boards of directors must be willing to work hard and be cheerleaders for their organization. He says even though times are tough, people are still willing to give.

Dr. Steve Batson said, "A lot of donors are more receptive during tough times. They understand they've got to cut back, but they understand organizations need their supoprt as much as ever." One tip Dr. Batson gave the non profits is to diversify the people who serve on their boards.
