Making the Ask  – September 21,2017  

When asking for money – be it $50 or $50,000 – it is critical for a nonprofit to carefully juggle a number of items to make it successful. You will develop a systematic approach for making the ask, so that your organization “goes in bold, not cold,” including:

  • Prospect Identification
  • Proper Research and Backgrounds on Donors
  • Designing the Case for Support
  • Cultivation and Information Sharing
  • Solicitation and Follow-up
  • Approaching Institutional Donors vs. Individual Donors
  • Stewardship and Reporting

This three-hour training will include case studies, examples, and role-playing scenarios to build comfort for your staff, board, and volunteers to ask for money. Perfect for anyone your organization charges with raising money.

 

Program Evaluations/Outcomes – November 2,2017

This three-hour training will expose you to the best practices for measuring true impact of your organization through methods of program evaluation.
