This is the capstone class for our Certificate in Fundraising, or can be taken by any development professional ready to activate fundraising strategy across the organization. We will explore how to strengthen your nonprofit’s culture of philanthropy through building a stronger partnership with the executive director, other staff and your board around the fundraising process. You will learn how to provide leadership to reset organizational culture around fundraising, including understanding the dynamics of organizational relationships, identifying goals for key board committees and setting appropriate expectations with the board. You will practice how to articulate your nonprofit’s true value to donors/funders as a basis for strengthening their connection to mission outcomes. By the end of the class, you will have a framework that your nonprofit can use to activate next steps that are grounded in your organization’s strategic thinking and that will allow for improved fundraising success.
