Foundations – General Public

Join a small group of other people who are interested in learning more about the wonderful world of fundraising. We will explore all aspects of fundraising during our time together!


After completing the two days of course content, you will meet with your group monthly (for 3 months) to talk further about whatever is important or top of mind for you. We call it a participant-led community of practice. Your instructor will join, for support or questions, but participants will lead the discussion.

what we'll cover

Day 1

- history of fundraising

- donor motivation

- fundraising vehicles

- structure of funding

Day 2

- communication tools

- storytelling

- donor cycle

- culture of philanthropy
