Fundraising Training

Fundraising Training

All non-profit organizations can benefit from periodic fundraising training. New organizations and Board/staff new to their positions can use the help right away, while even experienced fundraisers can benefit from refresher courses.

Description of Service

Through Development for Conservation LLC, I help non-profit organizations get the most out of their fundraising investment by providing training at all levels. Programs are tailored in length and in content to the needs of each individual organization and can include topics such as:

  • Membership Systems and Upgrading
  • Major Donor Programs
  • Capital Campaigns
  • Planned Giving
  • Fundraising Planning
  • Roleplays
  • Donor Strategy
  • Coaching

I am also available for other organizational facilitation needs such as problem solving, strategy development, operational planning and budget exercises, teambuilding, and Board development.

Fees and Expenses

I base my fee on an estimate of days required on site and estimated travel expenses from Madison, Wisconsin. The fee is typically in the $1,200-2,000 range. Travel expenses are explicitly included.

“It’s funny, because I feel like I’ve taken a lot of these types of courses through LTA, and even other nonprofit support groups, but your program was the first time that I actually left one of these things feeling like I “got it” – maybe I’m just slow, or maybe I was finally at the right place to be able to take the information and put it into our operation? But, I think the way you presented it was certainly part of the reason. Your advice was practical, and aimed at groups like ours – smaller, local conservation groups.”
