Workshop Description sponsored by CP Federal Credit Union

Fundraising is a focus on meeting a dollar goal, while philanthropy is about people feeling good about giving and giving back to your organization.  If an organization focuses on philanthropy, they ultimately generate more sustainable resources and these strong relationships can weather storms and help an organization grow while others shrink in tough economic times.

This training (pared down from a full-day training) will be a fast-paced and comprehensive view of how all members of the team—board members, executive team, staff, and volunteers—can raise money for your mission and build a stronger organization

Session Goals 

The workshop is interactive and will utilize data, training, discussion, peer interaction and coaching to address the following:

  • Build a culture of philanthropy that uses all team members, from board members to programming staff
  • Learn and develop the basic elements of a program
  • Build your prospect pool
  • Utilize and leverage your mission
  • Evaluate your fundraising practices

Designed for—

Tailored for your board, ED and development staff.  Attend together to get the most out of this engaging, hands-on day.
