Fundraising for Organizations Unable to Afford Fundraising Staff

 —  —

Blue Room - 250ne Community, 251 Bank St., Ottawa, Ottawa

This is a one-day workshop for charities and non-profits needing to raise funds, but unable to afford their own fundraising staff. It examines the pros and cons of various fundraising strategies (e.g. special events, foundation grants, major gift campaigns, crowdfunding, etc.) and how to develop a successful fundraising plan which works for your organization. The fundraising tools needed and tasks involved in executing a plan are thoroughly detailed. How will this work be organized? Options for meeting the human resource requirements and delegating the tasks are explored. The Board, Executive Director, volunteers, students, and some existing staff may all have roles to play. This workshop shows that it is possible to be efficient and effective at fundraising without hiring new staff.
