The Bronx African American History Project (BAAHP) will be hosting a free fundraising seminar for leaders and workers of non-profit organizations on Monday, Nov. 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 633, Dealy Hall, on the Rose Hill campus in the Bronx.

“We at the Bronx African American History Project are very excited to offer this opportunity to the students and community organizations we work with,” said Mark Naison, Ph.D., professor and chair of African and African-American studies. “I strongly recommend that Fordham students and alums with interest in the non-profit world attend this seminar as jobs in fundraising and development are always available even in a recession.”

Fordham alumna Molly Neville (FCRH ’06) and Tricia Keck of OAC Productions will lead the seminar. Neville once served as an event planner for the BAAHP and has had a successful career as a fundraiser and event planner in the Boston metropolitan area since graduating from Fordham.

Lunch will be served but space is limited. Those interested in participating should call (718) 817-3748 to RSVP.
