Do you need to raise more this year for your small, rural education foundation? Looking to revisit your development strategy, or get new ideas to acquire donors, raise community awareness, and build long-term sustainability?
By attending this workshop, you will leave with the training, tools, and information to develop new ways to engage your donors, acquire new gifts during year’s end, and understand ways to engage your board and volunteers in direct fundraising activities to acquire and upgrade donors. Gain information on how to create engaging, impact-centered fundraising messages for appeals, social media, and general communications, specific to the challenges of serving rural communities.
