9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Ashe Cultural Arts Center

1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., New Orleans

Build and strengthen relationships that will sustain your nonprofit!


Did you know that getting donors to give to your nonprofit is not just about what you say when you are asking for a gift, but what you are doing when you are NOT asking?

Attendees will receive a Certificate of Participation for completing the workshop.


Participants will learn:

  • The Donor Cultivation Cycle- a simple way to think about the process of identifying prospects, building great relationships, and asking donors to give in the right way.
  • The right balance of asking and not asking.
  • What to do with your donors who have the capacity to give the most.

Registration $40.  LANO members using the discount code LANO2017 receive 15% off!  Discounts also available for students, AmeriCorps members, and organizations registering two or more people.

Many nonprofits- maybe yours included!- incorporate special events into their fundraising efforts.  But as common as events are, most people seem to agree that they are expensive and time consuming, and many organizations have experienced the worst case scenario: spending more money on their event than they raise.

Fundraising Events 101 guides your nonprofit through the process of planning and executing a successful fundraising event, from working with volunteers to securing sponsors to organizing silent auctions to making sure things go smoothly on the big day.  


Registration is $35 per person, with discounts available for students, AmeriCorps and organizations registering two or more people.  To register online, visit www.thefundingseed.com.  To inquire about discount codes or to reserve your seat and pay at the door, email info@thefundingseed.com.
