Shes addressed more than 50 audiences from Baltimore to Beijing and is one of fewer than 10,000 Certified Fund-Raising Executives (CFREs) worldwide. In addition to running her boutique consulting firm, Valerie M. Jones Associates (VMJA), shes volunteered extensively, serving nonprofits as presi...dent, chair, board member, and committee member.Her method works.
