Greater Philadelphia area nonprofit organizations, struggling with declining donations, grants, and government support, can learn new ways to raise revenue through business ventures that support their missions at the Nonprofit Strategies Forum, sponsored by The Nonprofit Center at La Salle University's School of Business, on April 24.
