6-Week Basic Fund Development Course
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
