We are excited to be the recipients of the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust grant. This three year grant will allow us to hire a development coordinator and purchase the Classy Platform. With a new teammate and CRM, we will be able to maintain a donor database in one location, while providing a user friendly experience for donations and event registration. All of this will help us better serve Sarcoma patients and families in the Pacific Northwest.
