Foundations – Marketing and Communications Staff

Join a group of other marketing and communications team members to explore the amazing world of fund development. Come away with a new perspective on raising money and how the marketing and communications team can contribute.


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.
