Development directors, aspiring development professionals and executive directors understand that the mission is the reason for being and philanthropy is the lifeblood to support that mission.   

This class will walk you through the mindset of a relational fundraising process, including procedures for accepting, acknowledging and stewarding donors, from the first donation through to mature donor relationships. It will help you master the different requirements and expectations of various gift vehicles, show you how to budget the costs involved and manage the expenses, reinforce the importance of recognition and accountability, and teach you how to trouble-shoot potential problems. Real world examples will show the significance of what’s included in this process and how doing it right helps to maintain current and secure future support.
