About The Program

It is not enough to do good work for a good cause. You also have to know how to find the money to be effective.

Kim Klein has been in fundraising for over four decades and is internationally known as a master teacher and coach. Join her (and special guests) for this four part online workshop to learn how to build your base of individual donors. Kim will help you focus on relationships rather than donations, which will result in loyal donors who give money, time, visibility, ideas, and contacts to your organization. The sessions build on each other and there will be homework between sessions.

You will learn how to:

Choose the right fundraising strategy

Identify prospects and how to ask for money in person

Keep track of your donors

Design and run donor campaigns

Recruit and support a team of askers

Create a fundraising plan

Designed for staff, board members, and volunteers, this practical course is grounded in social justice values and is intended for social change organizations that lead with their mission and vision. Preference will be given to organizations sending at least two people for all four sessions.
