New Designs for Fundraising students will:
Explore the multi-disciplinary process of fundraising. Topics include the history of fundraising, ethics, environmental trends, strategic planning methodologies and how to engage volunteers in fundraising plans.

Participants will be equipped to apply the development process to their organization; evaluate, design and produce mail, telephone, internet and social media fundraising campaigns; focus their corporate and foundation fundraising efforts.
Gain the "toolbox" which contains information and instruction on methods to develop prospects and donors for the large gifts -- those that can make a critical difference in the operations and programs of nonprofit organizations. Participants will understand the principles of capital campaigns and planned giving; practice asking techniques; and gain assessment strategies to be able to analyze their organization’s fundraising programs.
Focus on supporting the people who sustain nonprofit organizations -- from volunteers and staff, to board members and other groups. Participants will learn key volunteer recruitment and team building strategies; develop tools to improve board development, performance, training and self-assessment.
