Course Description

Far too often organizations see donors through the distorted lens of retention rates and giving capacity. When it comes to fundraising, organizations must remember that relationships are a two-way street. The best fundraisers engage their donors in a multitude of ways: they build relationships, identify common interests, listen, and show gratitude.

Through this course, students will learn the ins and outs of fundraising from a seasoned fundraiser.

Learners will then apply the knowledge and stories learned from the class to the practices of their own organizations' development teams.
