Published on

Created in my political science class; The Third Sector and Nonprofit Organizations, described as, "Starting and managing nonprofit enterprises; differences between public, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations; nature and scope of the third sector; grant writing project."I composed a term presentation using my communications social media skills to give important points for nonprofit organizations to enhance their donations and grow. I used the Wounded Warrior Project organization as a successful example for the class to follow so that I kept it simple and to the point. Final grade received an A.
