Topics include:
• Developing a Fundraising Plan – Fundamentals and Best Practices

A successful and effective nonprofit has volunteer leadership that both drives and supports the organization’s strategic agenda.  Our Leadership Training is designed to cover topics most relevant to the organization’s stage of growth, from start-ups, founder-led or expanding organizations, to mature major institutions.

“The fundraising workshop has been critical for our museum to start tackling its needs. Thanks to the knowledge acquired I have been able to identify new donors and apply successfully for funding, significantly increasing our income from donations. This workshop is essential for anyone in executive positions in heritage management and I strongly recommend it”
