Our schedule of Basics & More™ classes for 2018 include the basics you’ve come to know and rely on, such as Your Fundraising Plan & Case for Support, creating your donor communications plan, Board Fundraising, Revenue Generating Nonprofit Newsletters, monthly giving, The Power of Thank You, Planned Giving, Online Fundraising, and more.
And in 2018, we’ll be providing comprehensive training in Microsoft mail merge and forms, allowing you to better customize your donor communications. No one else offers this. Also included will be a class in how to develop your strategic plan — and implement it, our new Donor Surveying class, and a brand new class on mid-level donors.
Are you looking for a donor database — or thinking about switching CRMs? You’ll want to join us for our spring webinar series on making the right selection for you.
Right now, you can have access to all of this for the low price of $749.99.
