Fund / Resource Development
In order to stay in business, an organization must raise money and find resources—including goods, services, and skilled volunteers. Board members, management and staff must each participate in this process for it to be most successful. We offer workshops that are user-friendly and make the process simple and specific.
All workshops are available as half-day or full-day presentations:
Free, Cheap, Edible: How Non-profits Can Leverage In-kind Donations
Never again pay for computers, software or furniture? It's possible.
Developing an in-kind donation program has a two-fold benefit: You get the professional services or the paper products or the software or the clothes you need to run your program and help your clients. You also are able to better communicate the full value of your program and services to donors and funders.
Creating a Fundraising Plan
Organizations that are successful at raising financial resources generally have a well-defined plan, have identified diverse funding sources, and know what it is about their organizations that will attract funders. This workshop will show you how to achieve your fundraising goals using our proprietary planning tools and processes.
99+ Effective Ways to Raise $$$
