Solicitation skills are important to an organization’s success. If you are new to resource development or have never been formally trained, this class will provide a strategic framework to consider how to create your value proposition and tailor your approach.
In five days, you will learn basic skills in developing and implementing a strategic fundraising program, including setting goals, choosing fundraising techniques, interfacing with staff and volunteers, data management, and evaluating results. Using a case statement as a foundation and creating a plan with supporting materials, participants will grow their confidence in “making the ask” by understanding basic principles of human nature and solicitation.
