Learn how to make the case for unrestricted support, identify donors, and other useful tips
Adirondack Foundation, the community foundation serving the Adirondack Region, in cooperation with Mountain Lake PBS, is delighted to offer the following workshop for nonprofit professionals, volunteers, and board members:
More Money! How to raise unrestricted dollars to support operations, programs, and everything you want to do.
Eighty percent of charitable funds come from individual donors, not foundations or corporations. This workshop is an opportunity to learn how to build a fundraising program that honors the mission of your organization, engages potential donors, and raises more unrestricted funding. It covers:
- Where money comes from: Building a diverse funding base
- The basic principles of fundraising
- Identifying prospective donors
- “The ask” — face to face solicitation
- Ranking the effectiveness of different fundraising strategies
This interactive workshop is being led by Andy Robinson, who has trained and supported thousands of nonprofit staff and volunteer leaders in 47 states and across Canada.
More Money! is taking place on Saturday, November 2, 2019, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., at Mountain Lake PBS in Plattsburgh. The cost per person is $40 for organizations with an operating budget over $100,000 or $20 for organizations with budgets under $100,000. Lunch is included.
