Program Summary

Does your organization have a fundraising plan? Does that concept strike fear in your heart? Or do you have one, but it sits on a shelf? Look forward to dispelling that fright and be ready to be turned into a provocative fundraiser. You'll be empowered to build something that works for you and your organization, get tools/templates/analysis opportunities, and work through real organizational scenarios to get you primed for building your own plan that fits your team and your mission.

Learning Objectives:

  • Leave with a strong understanding of the importance of an annual fundraising plan.
  • Gain tools and skills to create your own successful fundraising plan.
  • Learn techniques to implement and stay on track with your fundraising plan.
