6-Week Basic Fund Development Course 

June, 2020

I am piloting a new and exciting program!

This six-week course will focus on Fund Development and Fundraising for Small Nonprofits. A cohort of

participants will meet each week(virtually) and progress through a series of topics including:

  • Grant Readiness

  • How to run a successful crowdfunding campaign

  • How to find funding opportunities and build relationships with foundations and corporate giving programs

  • Creating comprehensive (and comprehensible) budgets 

  • Grant writing 101

 

The program will run from July through mid-August and we will work to find a time that is convenient for all participants. Expect to meet virtually for a weekly 3-hour session and to devote a few hours each week working on additional tasks. This cohort will learn from each other and hopefully will develop ongoing symbiotic relationships that will last beyond the length of the program.

This program is being offered free of charge in return for valuable feedback from program participants. If you are interested, please fill out this intake form or email melodybhernandez@gmail.com for more info.

The ideal participants will be Executive Directors, board members or volunteers from small organizations that are just beginning to build out a development plan/program. Those who are interested in pursuing a career in development (recently graduated college students, program staff, etc.) may be interested in this opportunity as well. I highly encourage those from marginalized communities to apply.
