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 do you 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.
