Money for the Cause: Introduction to Fundraising for Social Justice & Nonprofit Professionals
A diverse fundraising portfolio is essential to the financial health of any nonprofit organization. Over-reliance on one funding source or fundraising technique can threaten an organization’s solvency should a major funding source become unavailable due to a downturn in the economy, a donor’s change in funding priorities or other unexpected factors. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the revenue sources that typically comprise a ‘healthy’ fundraising portfolio, techniques and strategies to solicit funds from those sources, and internal mechanisms that nonprofits use to sustain their relationships with funders over the long-term.
Created to address the particular needs and challenges of Social Justice Activists and Nonprofit Professionals seeking to raise funds for grassroots and community based projects, this 6-hour workshop will ‘demystify’ the process and give participants information they can use immediately!
