Fundraising is one of the central activities of a nonprofit organization and nonprofit management. To help finance operating budgets, nonprofits must raise money every year. In addition, special projects and improvements to facilities may be needed. In these situations, fundraisers will often launch large capital campaigns or apply for foundation grants. This course offers an introduction to fundraising for nonprofit organizations, with an emphasis on the fundamental issues. In this hybrid class you’ll complete the curriculum online, and we’ll use our time together to: discuss in an open forum the do's and don'ts of today's fundraising process, as well as workshop scenarios; and explore appeals and strategies for successful fundraising methods.
