Creating a multi-faceted funding stream for your nonprofit is critical for long-term success. This workshop will show you how to create an innovative and comprehensive, yet simple fundraising plan based on your unique assets to engage the right people inside and outside of your organization. Learn to go beyond the basics that you already know — grants, annual giving, events, etc. — and take a deep dive into the waters of grassroots fundraising and community building. Explore the issues involved in corporate sponsorships and how to engage donors for meaningful, long-term relationships. Come prepared to share innovative ideas that have worked for you and to learn some new tricks to add to your toolkit.
