Fundraising Fundamentals

Fundraising Fundamentals

"Unlike sales," says Dr. Drew, "Fundraising requires exceptional political, interpersonal, and research skills." In this one-day workshop, the award winning author, trainer, and consultant introduces simple but proven ideas for success now. Participants will learn how fundraising has evolved, and how new software, New Raiser's Edge and Fundraiser, will make it easier to track donors and reduce the pressures of a face-to-face request.

Complete all four classes and receive a Certificate of Accomplishment for 24 hours of Grant Writing instruction.
