Fundraising Essentials Bootcamp

The Fundraising Essentials Bootcamp is a one-day, intensive workshop that will transform your approach to development, and open your eyes to new ways of exceeding your fundraising goals. Back by popular demand, Kathy Drucquer Duff will facilitate presentations, best practice discussions and hands-on experience on important topics including:

  • Emerging trends in philanthropy and how these impact our work
  • Building language that works
  • Golden rules of donor meetings and conversation transitions
  • Mastering the one-meeting qualification
  • Strengthening the ask, including asks on a first visit and blended asks
  • Developing and using prospect strategies to maximize success

Whether you are a seasoned fundraiser or new to development, you will leave Bootcamp with feelings of renewal and excitement, and real tools to create a comprehensive fundraising plan of your own.

This program is accredited for 7 hrs by CFRE and appropriate for all planned giving professional levels.
