About This Session:

Has your organization decided it’s time to “take on fund development”?  Are you taking the reigns of a development department with little to no structure? If you find yourself at square one, this webinar is for you! In this session we will explore the critical core elements of a fund development program, how best to establish realistic timelines for implementation, determining what you can handle and where you need help, and how best to set you and your team up for success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify at least three core elements needed in creating a well-rounded development program;
  • Determine at least two appropriate implementation benchmarks for their program’s development;
  • Inventory their supply of available assistance, be that internal (either staff or volunteers) or third-party assistance; and
  • Identify the three most critical components that constitute success within their organization.

Target Audience:

  • New and intermediate-level small shop Directors of Development and Executive Directors with development responsibility.

CFRE Credits:
