The Fundraising Intensive Program is a 10-month training program that combines group learning and one-on-one coaching to provide practical tools and best practices on a range of fundraising activities.  

Participants meet monthly in New Orleans for a group discussion focused on a single funding topic.  Then, each participating nonprofit receives 90 minutes of individual coaching to help them apply the skills and tools from the group session to their own unique organization.

Program details and application

Over the course of the program, the nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers involved will learn about:

Fundraising Planning
Telling Your Story
Individual Donor Development
Major Gifts
Fundraising Events: House Parties
Fundraising by Mail and Email
Researching and Writing Grant Proposals

 Here's what some of this year's graduates are saying about the
Fundraising Intensive Program:
"[This] was a great experience for my partner and I...We were able to create a culture of fundraising at our organization and on the board...We are more confident, efficient and effective. I highly recommend this course."
- Ameca Reali, The Justice and Accountability Center of Louisiana

"I've participated in many different training sessions on fund development. This is the first program that immediately resulted in additional income for our organization."

- Kim Dudek, Dag's House
