Writing a marketing plan is easier than you think, and it doesn’t take a marketing degree or a great amount of time. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the key elements contained in a Nonprofit Marketing Plan while embarking on an interactive journey to create one for your organization. You will work both individually and as part of a team to answer the questions a strong marketing plan must address.

(A 6 hour Interactive Workshop)

Every nonprofit knows that fundraising and development activities are key to growth and sustainability. However many organizations struggle not only with HOW to make the ask but with WHAT the requirements of good stewardship are once they receive funds. In this workshop you will take a comprehensive look at each critical phase of making the ask. You will learn the fundamentals of fundraising and development, best practices for support requests, and the responsibilities of good stewardship. And, through interactive exercises you will also learn how to reach out to potential donors, how to interact with them at all stages of the relationship, and how to turn one-time contributions into multiple year funding opportunities.


(A 4 hour Interactive Workshop)

Many nonprofits are so busy getting to the business of running a nonprofit they often forget to officially launch it to the public and media. But, garnering attention and support early in the game can be the difference between struggling and thriving. A public launch can not only increase awareness around your nonprofit and its cause, but can help you to recruit clients, volunteers, financial supporters and collaborators. In this workshop you will follow a detailed plan on how to promote your organization to attract and engage the attention and support needed to run a successful nonprofit.
