Fundraising Basics for Nonprofit Startups

Take the guesswork out of building a solid foundation for your fundraising efforts.

The Budget Dance

Funders invest many thousands of dollars in charitable programs, but unfortunately, some frown on administrative line items. This class will give you tips for maximizing your grant budget.

The course will look at 7 different methods that U.S. nonprofits typically use to grow their financial base for programs and operations.
