Are you uncertain about how and when to reach out to your donors during this pandemic? Do you need help taking the next step forward and being held accountable to reaching out and asking your donors? Are you starting to panic about how to launch your end-of-year campaign?

If so, our fund development team is here to help! The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the fundraising efforts of many Alaska nonprofits. That’s why we are offering a new, short-term Fundraising Action Plan cohort that specifically guides you through the steps you need to take NOW to get you the funding results you want.

This is a hands-on experience that will require you to do homework and real-time work with your donors – with the support of your team, a cohort of peers, and Foraker’s fund development experts. You will walk away with specific tools customized for your organization to use immediately (including organized donor data, a calendar action plan and COVID-specific ask language).

Launching on September 21, the cohort will consist of four, 2-hour webinars of interactive instruction, as well as up to four hours of individual consultation and coaching time with the instructors.

This class is for Executive Directors. Up to 2 additional members of your staff and/or board are encouraged to participate and a board member is required to attend at least the first class. The total cost for each organization to participate is $1,350 or $1,100 for Partners.

Take a step toward putting your organization on healthier financial footing. APPLY TODAY. Applications are due August 21.
