From The Heart of Denise B. Lawrence
I have worked with nonprofits across the United States since 1987, and I have experienced times of scarcity and times of abundance with these organizations. What motivates me to keep going are the countless men and women who meet challenges like we face today head on, ready to learn, ready to take risks and ready to overcome. This work for me is the result of my life coming full circle. As an ordained pastor, I have always been driven by the biblical calling to help the lost, poor and the unjust. Helping leaders like you to build profitable nonprofits creates bold opportunities to change the lives of millions – much more than I can do alone. Nonprofits are the means to changing the lives of the suffering. This community unfolds the resources and the network to be bolder through a cost-effective and engaging platform. I am so excited about the possibilities of working together!
