    Event Description:
    Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, 2020
    Ending Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020
    This online course is three weeks in length.

    Your organization is doing exceptional work. You are passionate about your mission. The potential is great, if only more funding were available. Effective fundraising practices can be adapted to meet the unique realities of smaller nonprofits. Efficiently use your time and existing resources – including board members and other volunteers – to achieve your fundraising goals.

    You'll learn how to

    • Build a convincing case for financial support
    • Select the donors and markets best suited to your nonprofit
    • Choose the right fundraising vehicles for your organization
    • Inspire the leadership potential of volunteers
    • Create a fundraising process that works, but is attainable with limited resources

    What you’ll receive

    • A comprehensive, easy-to-use study guide with models for future reference
    • A chance to network with other professionals dealing with similar challenges
    • Hands-on experience in planning special events
    • Interactive training on how to ask for support

    Course/Participation Requirements

    Each week you'll have a course module to complete. You should expect to spend a minimum of 4-5 hours per week on course assignments. Participants are not required to logon at any set time but must meet weekly deadlines to maintain pace with the course. Each module consists of:

    • readings from a PDF study guide (or selection of PDF articles)
    • viewing a pre-recorded narrated presentation
    • completing a 10-question quiz where you must score a 7 or higher
    • engaging in forum discussions with others
