Basics of Non Profit Fundraising 

Lack of funding is the major cause why so many amazing initiatives don't even take off, or get to the next level of impact.  Most nonprofits, as well as many socially conscious businesses, individuals and others fall prey to limiting paradigms that curtail programs that have the potential of empowering thousands, and even millions. This is typically due to a lack of knowledge of different funding streams available, fear and inability to properly ask for funds, over-reliance on a limited number of supporters, and a lack of vision and strategy behind a coherent fundraising program.

This workshop will focus on three critical factors to ensure fundraising success. 

  • Creative fundraising strategies
  • Funder research 
  • Grant-writing

Fundraising is a sought after and extremely marketable skill. Space is limited, so act now!
