hello fundraiser!

The New School of Fundraising is just that - New! We are reimagining fundraising education and believe that each and every one of us has a little bit of a fundraiser inside.


Whether you are a professional fundraiser, volunteer or passionate community member, the New School of Fundraising is a place that is dedicated to equipping you with the skills that you need to raise funds. We know that helping people to raise more money will strengthen our communities and ultimately make the world a better place.


Our approach is grounded in personal interaction and relationship building, focusing on both the art and science of fundraising. We run courses and workshops throughout the year, offer private training and host special events.

our curriculum

The New School of Fundraising offers a variety of virtual training options to suit your needs. Learn more about our offerings below, or view our course calendar here.


Our signature course focuses on fundraising theory as well as practical application. Students will build their skills and confidence by improving their knowledge of the science behind fundraising success and gain an appreciation and awareness of the art.


We offer short, skill-building workshops on topics ranging from social media to sponsorship to community fundraising and everything in between.
