This course helps you take many of the skills you’ve acquired – whether as a student in The Nonprofit Center’s Certificate in Fundraising or as a development professional – and put them in context to create an integrated development strategy. Designed to help strengthen your nonprofit’s “culture of philanthropy,” this course looks critically at various components of the fundraiser’s toolkit and focuses on practical application of your fundamental knowledge of fundraising.
Participants will be able to apply lessons learned in ways that are immediately actionable. They will receive tools and explore processes for engaging others such as staff, the executive director, and the board in the fundraising process. They will practice ways to strengthen donor communications and build relationships. They will explore metrics and how best to involve others in analysis of fundraising results. Accordingly, participants will return to their nonprofit with a framework for next steps that are grounded in the organization’s strategic thinking and advance the organization’s mission and vision. By understanding how the components fit together so that philanthropy is incorporated into the organizational culture, participants will be better prepared to move forward in defining future steps for implementation.
This class is appropriate as a capstone course for the Fundraising Certificate and for the development professional who understands the fundamental elements of raising funds and is ready to refine key aspects of their fundraising strategy and engage others more deeply in this work.
