The Essentials of Fundraising - Choose your sources, know your role

Partner: FREE / General: FREE

Are you interested in learning about your options for raising charitable money and how the board can be involved in the process? Do you want to know how to use special events to connect to your mission and your donors?  Do you want to know the difference between an annual gift and a planned gift?  This course is ideal for organizations that want to improve their existing approach and those new to raising charitable funds. In this class you will learn:

  • The various sources of money available to nonprofits and the challenges and opportunities of each source
  • Sound strategies for improving existing events and approaches to various types of donors
  • Brief overview of the appropriate role of the board in raising money

You will leave this class with a fresh look at your organization's fundraising and decide if you use balanced strategies to achieve maximum benefit from your development activities.
