Last spring, Central Maine Community College asked me to put together an entire Fundraising Institute. So once a month for the next eight months, I’ll be giving a 3-hour seminar on various aspects of nonprofit fundraising.
The first seminar is “Fundraising 101” on September 21st from 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Raising money for nonprofits isn’t rocket science but it’s not all common sense either. This seminar shares some easy-to-apply principles based on decades of fundraising excellence. This is helpful both for people new to the field and for experienced pros.
Participants will learn:
- the only 3 types of communication nonprofits need,
- how many times to say “thank you” between solicitations,
- the difference between annual funds, capital campaigns, and
- endowments, and a simple model for your setting up a fundraising effort
I’m really excited about this Institute. Go to http://www.cmcc.edu/training/ to register.
