What Every New Nonprofit Needs to Know About Raising Money
After you have filed your paperwork, now you need to start raising money. But where do you start without a donor list or supporters? Obtaining funding for a new nonprofit can be more difficult initially than when you become established. Exploring possibilities, creating systems and beginning to have conversations will benefit the organization and start raising money.
Specifically, you’ll get essential information on:
• Assessing where to find donors
• Exploring peer-to-peer fundraising, memberships, programs and events
• Marketing and advertising
Our Nonprofit Startup Series includes:
- Feb. 3: To Be or Not To Be a Nonprofit: Seven Questions to Consider Before Starting a 501(c)(3)
- March 3: The Information You Need to Form a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization
- April 7: What Every New Nonprofit Needs to Know About Raising Money
- May 5: Choosing the Right Strategy to Set Up Your Nonprofit
Each class will build on the content taught in the previous session. Registration is $15 per class. If you miss a class in the series you will be able to download a specially-designed on-demand version after the class concludes, also $15. We encourage live attendance when possible to be able to ask questions and get the most out of the discussion. Class attendees will receive a recording of the live class as a part of the registration fee.
