Event Details

Would you like to diversify your revenues to ensure your long-term financial success and sustainability? Are you concerned that your organization may be too dependent on only 1-2 primary funding sources?

In this 3-hour, in-person workshop, we will invite you to expand your sources of funding in light of increasing competition and shifting priorities of institutional funders. Five specific fund development strategies will be shared using hands-on exercises and real-world examples.

As a result of this workshop, you will:

  • Have a broader understanding of new potential revenue sources including earned income, sponsorships, crowd-funding, and more.
  • Leave with specific strategies and tools you can use in your organization.
  • Learn effective communication strategies when approaching funders and potential investors.
