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. 

Does your organization need to increase its fundraising results? Is your board unaware of, uninterested in, or not sure how to implement their fundraising role? This webinar is for board members and staff of non-profit organizations to come together and work as a group on how to improve their fundraising results.

  • Why do you need to raise money?
  • How do you currently raise money?
  • What are your goals for the next year? Next five years?
  • What changes do you need to make in your fundraising?
  • How money is raised?
  • Psychology of philanthropy
