Development Companion

The Development Companion Quarterly Newsletter

The Development Companion© from DeWitt & Associates is a quarterly journal for nonprofit chief executives, Board members, key volunteers, and development professionals.

Designed to be “user friendly,” the Development Companion© provides easy access to the process of operating a development program in a 1, 2, 3 . . .step-by-step format.  Every issue is steeped in sound, proven development principles.

Think of the Development Companion© as a tool box.  With each issue focusing on one topic, you will be adding another tool to your collection of handy references to assist you and your staff in doing your jobs.

Because we want to make the Development Companion©an increasingly valuable tool, we will be responsive to your input on topics to be covered.  Also, we will make every effort to answer by e-mail or regular mail questions that may have been raised by the topic, and our approach to it.
