Reach your fundraising goals

Fundraising is critical to every nonprofit organization and it’s important to stay true to the mission along the way. Fortunately, there are many ways to do it. And truth be told, it can be fun! In this vital program, you will first learn about the spirit and ethics of giving. After that, you will learn how and why to diversify in order to reach fundraising goals. Ultimately, you will come to understand why a fund development plan is crucial.  

Specific, useful tools will be shared for attendees to take with them to lead them into their fundraising future.
