Foundations – Mid Level Fundraisers

Join a group of other mid-level fundraisers as we explore topics that affect your day to day work. Course content is designed for mid-level fundraisers who are managing fundraising staff or plan to be managing as the next step in their career. Discussions will focus on fundraising strategies, leading others to fundraise and more importantly - you!


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

- leadership vs. management

- creating effective teams

- building fundraising strategies

- overcoming challenges

Day 2

- difficult conversations

- confidence

- working across teams

- building a culture of philanthropy
