Ask any nonprofit leader what one of their greatest organizational challenges is and they will resoundingly answer, “Fundraising!” Recent changes in the global economy have created scarcer financial resources and focused even greater attention on the need for philanthropic giving and funding development for nonprofit organizations.

This course teaches you the basics of the fund development process, how to cultivate charitable giving resources and create a plan that will result in effective fundraising strategies for your organization – even in the toughest of economic times.
