Fundraising/Development/Capacity-building for Nonprofits (Escne of New England)
"I learned about the importance of the annual fund as the bread-and-butter funding source for many small non-profit organizations (NPOs). The annual fund provides financial stability for an NPO so that they can deliver services to the communities that depend upon them. The course focused on the communications cycle, including (1) how to compose successful warm-up and solicitation letters; (2) when and how to reach out; and (3) how to evaluate fundraising solicitations. Using a case study, I prepared a plan of action for a small non-profit to ensure its financial stability over a fiscal year and beyond."
