This course will instruct participants in how to fund their unique activities and impart effective grant writing and reporting skills. Learn how to identify foundations willing to fund your organization’s projects and needs.
The entire Principles of Fundraising series of classes are specifically designed for novice to intermediate fund development personnel, executive directors, board members, volunteers, and those considering starting a nonprofit organization.
