Developing a Fundraising Plan Webinar
The Developing a Fundraising Plan webinar teaches how to design a fundraising strategy and tackle the problems frequently found at each stage of the fundraising process. Hosted by George Ivey, a non-profit fundraising and project management consultant, the webinar is a helpful tool for those starting a new fundraising campaign or looking to reboot an existing campaign. Watch the free webinar online. To paraphrase that sagely advice from yesteryear: “No one plans to fail, they just fail to plan.” And the same applies to fundraising. Laying out a strong plan before you start a campaign helps to ensure the success of your organization’s efforts. Allay your fears and confusion as you learn the various aspects of a fundraising plan including goals, organizational assessment, timelines, fund diversification, identification of donors (and the “donor pyramid”) and evaluation. The webinar was originally recorded April 11, 2012.
