Overview

A deliberate process preparing you for the future, resource development planning does not have to be complex or time-consuming: It can be pragmatic, simple, and built into the existing internal routines of your organization. Whichever approach you take, this course shows you how to implement a reliable resource development planning process in your own organization.

Leading a successful development effort requires a variety of skills and competencies. The biggest challenge, no matter what the size of the organization, is to match the chosen method (or methods) of fundraising with the mission, the characteristics of potential supporters, and the resources available to do the necessary work.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognize an effective development plan using SMART goals that define fundraising strategies and targets, taking into consideration the organization’s mission, strategic plan and goals, and available resources and capacity.
  • Identify the key roles for staff and volunteers in fundraising for your organization.
  • Assess the health of your organization’s development and fundraising culture.

Audience

Whether staff, volunteer, or board member, if you are new to nonprofits or new to fundraising, this series of classes is for you! The individual courses in the Certificate of Fundraising Essentials are at the 100 (introductory) level and designed for people looking for the fundamentals of primary revenue sources and of managing successful fundraising and development operations.
