Top 5 Reasons to Apply for the Fundraising Intensive Program

Posted By Nora Ellertsen, The Funding Seed, LLC, Thursday, March 26, 2015
The Fundraising Intensive Program is an exclusive, 10-month course offered by The Funding Seed that combines group learning and individual coaching to help you bring your nonprofit's fund development to the next level.

You can read the full program description and application here.


Top 5 Reasons to Apply for the Fundraising Intensive Program
1. Your nonprofit needs money.
Okay, yes: every nonprofit needs money.  It's the one thing that unifies all nonprofit organizations: everyone needs to be able to confidently, successfully raise funds.

Through this program, your nonprofit gets hands-on help that allows you to raise money more effectively than ever before.  Plus, the program is designed so that you raise money as you go.  That means you're not just learning some nice theories to keep in a drawer for the future; you're helping your nonprofit immediately become more financially successful.

2. You've done some workshops and webinars here and there, but never seem to be able to get motivated to use the things you've learned.
It happens to the best of invest a few hours in a great training event, walk away invigorated with some exciting new ideas for how to make your fund development program better than ever...and then you never get around to actually doing anything with them.

Here's the thing: for a lot of us, it's really hard to make time for the things that we know we should do when we've got so much else going on.  

With the Fundraising Intensive Program, you have 10 months of working with a professional coach and with a group of other nonprofit staff, volunteers and board members, all of whom help keep you accountable to your goals.  That can make a difference during the program itself, and also help you to create great habits that allow you to be successful long after the program ends!

3. You want more training and support with your fundraising, and you want to get the most bang for your buck.
The  monthly tuition covers more than 40 hours of group and individual coaching over the course of the ten month program, in addition to training materials that are yours to keep forever.  That means you're saving a lot- the same amount of support and training would usually cost much more, but because you're sharing expenses with the other program participants, you end up paying a whole lot less.

Yes, the Fundraising Intensive Program is still a financial investment.  But for the level of attention and guidance you receive, you end up getting a whole lot more bang for your buck.

4. You feel like the only one out there dealing with these challenges.
The Fundraising Intensive Program brings together the same small group of people month after month to talk about how fundraising is working at their own nonprofits- both the stuff that's going great and the stuff that's more of a challenge.  That means that, over time, the group becomes a trusted learning community.

By the end of the program, you'll have developed relationships with other nonprofit professionals and volunteers who can continue to support you- and you support them- long into the future.

5. You're ready to dedicate yourself, and your nonprofit, to fundraising success.
If you're ready to make the commitment to your nonprofit's financial success, then don't wait any longer- apply to be a member of the Fundraising Intensive Program's Class of 2016.  This program is created specifically to help people like you raise immediate funds while also making lasting change at their nonprofits.  By joining the Fundraising Intensive Program, you have the opportunity to become the strongest fundraiser you can be, and to help your organization develop the resources it needs to make the largest impact possible.
