Is your major donor pipeline full?
Do you have a stable of big donors you can count on to fund new projects, capital campaigns, and annual appeals?
Are your major donors constantly introducing you to new prospects?
If the answer to any of these questions is “no,” then I invite you to join me for The Fundraising Authority’s newest class: How to Find New Major Donors and Get Them to Give to Your Nonprofit.
Help Your Organization Find the Large Donors It Needs to Thrive
Far too many nonprofits are stuck in the “fundraising rat race.” These organizations are doing amazing work, but struggling with finding enough donors and prospects to really thrive. Instead of being able to launch new programs, increase their capacity or build new facilities, these nonprofits are stuck wondering where the next big check will come from… never sure whether or not they can find the major donors they need to thrive.
Does this describe your nonprofit? Do you need to find new major donors to help you carry out your work? A strong base of major donor support is crucial to the success of every nonprofit organization.
During this class, I want to help you overcome the fundraising rat race and develop a pipeline of major donors you can count on to not only make major gifts, but also to introduce your organization to their friends and colleagues who can likewise be cultivated for support.
What’s Included in the Class?
The goal for this class is to help you find new major donors for your nonprofit, and get them to make major gifts. The course is presented online, so you can learn from the comfort of your own home or office. The classes materials are available through your course page each week, but you can read and listen at your own leisure.
Every week, you will access:
(1) A comprehensive written guide to that week’s topic that you can read on your computer, smartphone, tablet or e-reader, or print out at your leisure. These guides are 7-10 PDF pages of course material that contain everything you need to know about that week’s topic.
(2) An engaging podcast seminar (15-20 minutes each) delving deeper into that week’s topic. The podcasts will be presented in MP3 form and can be listened to on your computer, or on your smartphone, tablet or in your car.
If you’re not technologically savvy, that’s ok, we’ll include information on how to download and read/listen to the course materials. And don’t worry, there aren’t any tests or quizzes in this class!
Learn at Your Own Pace with Lifetime Access
If you’re busy or need to skip a week or two, don’t worry, you can learn at your own pace. With your class registration, you will gain lifetime access to the course materials, so you will be able to download, read, and listen to them at your own pace.
