Foundations – Program Staff

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

what we'll cover

Day 1

- history of fundraising

- donor motivation

- fundraising vehicles

- structure of funding

- sponsorship

Day 2

- communication tools

- storytelling

- donor cycle

- culture of philanthropy
