These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.
