Reliable Fundraising in Unreliable Times with Kim Klein

Raising money is hard, but after this workshop you’ll have tools to overcome the obstacles. Join Kim, an expert on fundraising for organizations that work for social justice, and discover what a systematic and disciplined fundraising program looks like, how to create a message that raises money, why people who have jobs are your best prospects and which strategies reach them, the importance of segmenting your donors and how to work with each segment, and how to mobilize your board and other volunteers to raise money. You’ll learn why building a broad base of donors is crucial and how you can do that by creating a clear and compelling case, identifying prospective donors, asking for money in person, and building a team of people willing to ask. You’ll work with partners to practice phoning to set up meetings, and you’ll work in twos and threes to practice asking for money in person. You’ll come out ready to fundraise like a pro.
