Aurora Grants 2012 Blog Highlights
Linda Beeman, Aurora Grants

December, 2012

Season's Greetings!

For over 2 years, we at Aurora Grants & Consulting have been proud to share our insights and experiences with you through our monthly blog articles.
To date, we have touched on a variety of topics, from Websites and Social Media, to Board Development and Donor Motivation.  Along the way, we have
highlighted nearly 50 unique charities, with links to each of their websites. 

As our gift to you, we have attached a list of each month's blog topic and the nonprofits that were highlighted. Use it to see if there are any topics you
missed, or nonprofit websites you would like to revisit. Also, please let us know if there's anything special that you would like to see next year!

This month, we have a special holiday treat for you. Click here to see how one man's vision has impacted the lives of 125,000 children.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season,
