What would happen if no one in an organization focused their efforts on resource development? Would great non-profits be forced to reduce or cancel programs, postpone critical events/campaigns, or even worse…close their doors?

This workshop sheds light on development planning basics so individuals new to the world of fundraising and non-nonprofits are equipped to make successful transitions. A healthy development staff and plan help put safety nets in place to ensure organizations can survive major transitions and work towards long-term goals. The workshop facilitator will engage participants in strategy sessions designed to dissect the roles and responsibilities of development staff, identify diverse funding/resource streams, and highlight best practices and creative solutions to a successful development position.
