Now more than ever, nonprofit organizations need their development strategies to be well structured, creative and data-driven. Donor portfolio development and management is crucial in identifying what donors are seeking and how nonprofits can best engage them. Nonprofit organizations not only need an understanding of the donor market, stakeholders and fundraising strategy, but also a strong infrastructure to drive fundraising decisions.
In this program, you will learn how to assess your current fundraising systems, communicate your philanthropic value and leverage data for strategic fundraising. You will also address engaging your board members as brand ambassadors as a means for fundraising. This program will bring in experts from the field to lead you through a rich mix of classroom learning and highly interactive discussions.
