Course Description

Course Description

Fundraising is the process of asking for contributions from individuals, companies, and foundations. Non-profits can fundraise through a variety of digital and traditional communication methods. Fundraising, in all of its forms, is crucial for non-profits to complete their projects and fulfill their causes. Without fundraising, organizations would have no incoming revenue.

How much money do you currently raise from your business community?

You could be raising triple, or more, than what you currently raise if you follow the plans outlined in this online CPE course.

In this CPE webinar, speakers Joanne Oppelt and Linda Lizakowski will talk about what businesses are looking for, how to build relationships with business leaders, and how to run a volunteer-driven annual business appeal.

Speakers will show you how to build relationships with business leaders, present your case to businesses, cultivate business leaders, run volunteer-driven business appeals, and much more to successfully raise money from your business community. They have used this methodology to take an organization from raising $6,000 a year from local businesses to raising $500,000 from that same business community. How did they do it?

Join this CPE/CPD webinar and they will show you how, step by step.

You can also register for the following E-Books of the speaker available on myCPE:
