Articulating the fundraising goals of your nonprofit are critical to success in raising the revenue needed to support the people and services you provide. The fundraising plan is one of the most crucial and challenging aspects of fundraising. It will help you operate efficiently, profitably and build confidence in your fundraising program. A well-thought out plan will keep you from getting distracted by the “new bright, shiny object” that is the latest rage in raising money.

In this workshop you will learn the basics of what is critical to your plan and how it will make a huge difference for your fundraising success. Specifically you will walk away with information you need to write your own plan.
