Kim Klein is an author, publisher, and consultant who works with nonprofits to help them meet their fundraising challenges. She's in Montana this week for some training with nonprofits in Missoula, Helena, Kalispell and Billings.
Klein says the cuts in government funding are an impossible gap to fill.
