9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


A successful campaign can make or break your fundraising goals for the year. Close out your year on a high note by attending this workshop and launching your campaign successfully!


With 40%-70% of all donations to nonprofit organizations arriving in the last few months of the year, you know end-of-year campaigns are important for your organization's bottom line, but the high stakes and multiple steps can make them seem overwhelming.

Where should you start? How do you best coordinate all the pieces? How do you stand out in a very crowded space?  How do you move people to action?

Year- end fundraising campaigns do not just happen . . . they require planning and execution.  In this class we will prepare you to launch your first campaign or improve your 2016 campaign.

What the workshop will cover:

•   How to get you going or improve your current campaign

•   A timeline of a successful campaign that includes the how, what, and why

•   Gain ideas and tips to successfully launch or greatly improve your 2016 campaign

Who should take this class?

Development and fundraising professionals.

This workshop is included in the Nonprofit Management Certification series and fulfills three hours in the Fundraising competency area.

Cost:  $60.00
