Nonprofit Principles of Fundraising
Free but registration required.
Fundraising is about inviting people to be part of something worthwhile, something bigger than they are, something meaningful that changes lives. The key is finding and keeping amazing donors who love the work your organization does and come back year after year to give more. In other words, good fundraising is about building relationships. That means always putting your donor at the center of all the fundraising you do. Learn how to build a base of donors and develop the meaningful conversations that make your donors feel appreciated. Find out how to create and execute a plan that brings in new donors, engages the ones you have and makes everyone feel special so you can raise a lot of money as a result.
