With the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we know it’s a challenging time for everyone.

Strong donor relationships are critical to fundraising success at all stages of the development cycle—especially during the COVID-19 era.  Explore eight steps successful fundraisers take to reach and surpass their goals. These steps present proven techniques for connecting with donors, effectively communicating your cause, and cultivating long-term relationships, even during a pandemic.

This 3-hour online workshop will include an interactive virtual session where you will learn real-world experiences and scenarios from our experienced instructors, receive peer feedback in small group virtual breakout sessions, and walk away with relevant takeaways and practical strategies for fundraising in the current landscape.
