To support your work and ensure our trainings are more accessible during this difficult time, we’re offering this program at an early-bird price of $49 – half of the standard cost.

We all want to grow our individual donor base, but where to start?! If you’re interested in learning how to find new individual donors, then join us as we will provide practical strategies for researching prospects who share a passion for your organization’s mission.

You’ll walk away with inspiration, confidence, and the next steps that you can immediately apply to your fundraising.
