Nonprofit staff, board members, and other volunteers face the task of raising the resources needed to advance their missions and sustain their organizations.
LANO recommends a diversified fund development plan with a mix of revenue generating strategies to mitigate the challenges associated with a sudden loss of a funding source or reductions in excepted revenue.
Typically, nonprofits gravitate toward grants and special events as the primary fund development strategies. Yet trends in giving consistently reveal the majority of philanthropy is individual giving. More nonprofits are incorporating earned income, cause-marketing, and social media into their fund development plans.
With so many strategies to consider, how can nonprofit executives and board members determine the right mix of fund development strategies for their organization?
The Fund Development: Diversifying Your Portfolio workshop provides an overview of the most common fund development strategies and trends in fundraising. Participants will learn best practices for fund development planning and engaging the Board of Directors and volunteers in fundraising.
This training is free of charge; however attendees will be asked to provide certain information per state contract guidelines.
