Training

Immediately following the workshop I was contacted by one of our donors regarding planned giving. Thanks to your workshop I was able to convey all the necessary information and secured the planned giving gift.

We provide trainings on a range of fundraising and other organizational development topics for individual organizations, foundation grantee cohorts, nonprofit conferences, and via webinar. Trainings (ranging from two hours to multi-day formats) can be customized for boards, staff, and volunteers.

We will work with you to design a curriculum that meets your unique needs.

Here is a sample of some of the topics we can cover:

  • Key elements of fundraising success
  • Steps to successful fundraising from individual donors
  • Getting over the fear of asking
  • Making an ask
  • Building a fundraising team
  • Developing effective boards
  • The role of the board in fundraising
  • Creating a fundraising plan
  • Fundraising campaigns
  • Writing effective appeals
  • Integrating fundraising and program work
  • Planned giving for small nonprofits
  • Fundraising to build grassroots power
  • Fundraising in uncertain times
  • Special events & house parties

 

Your fundraising workshop really fired up the board, and that is a real first. I also appreciate that you had such an intimate feel for our organization just from the literature I sent you. No one has quite connected to the important stuff as you did.
