Fundraising is one of the areas where size envy can be intense. Smaller nonprofits look at media coverage, corporate relationships, naming opportunities, major donors and bequests, and accept that they can’t compete with the larger, flashier organizations.

But we can’t lose sight of the fact that it’s mission that matters most. Even without a big name and connections, a nonprofit can be successful at fundraising by following the fundamental rules about building relationships. Small donor lists require deeper relationships. How to build and maintain these will be a key topic of this class. Other important elements that will be covered include the make-up of a fundraising team when you lack staff, the role of the board, how to identify and prioritize the right fundraising vehicles to diversify your income and how to find and share the stories that connect people to your organization.

SKU: N/A Category: Audience: While aimed especially at small nonprofits (with budgets of $250,000 or less) who are less likely to have multiple staff fundraisers, this class is appropriate for any organization who lack a fund-raising office.
