Fundraising Basics and Beyond is a fast-paced, interactive workshop that will cover the basics every nonprofit organization needs to know to be successful at fundraising.  Attendees will learn how to create a realistic annual development plan and the steps for implementing it.  Discussion topics will include: setting achievable goals, identifying the best prospects for your agency, engaging your staff and board of directors in fundraising, developing your case for support, delivering your case to potential donors and making the ask.  And, most importantly, this workshop will also explore how to overcome your own fears about fundraising and how to put the “fun” back in FUNdraising.
