Interested in fundraising but not sure to begin? Our friends at the Foundation Center are offering a new course, Starting a Career in Nonprofit Fundraising.  This course is the perfect opportunity for those considering careers in fundraising - an important aspect of the nonprofit sector – as well as for those who are joining the nonprofit world in other capacities and want to learn the ins and outs of fundraising.

Starting a Career in Nonprofit Fundraising is a comprehensive, day-long course that introduces attendees to the vocation of nonprofit fundraising; clarifies the roles and responsibilities of fundraisers; identifies the skills necessary to succeed as a nonprofit fundraising professional, and helps attendees develop a strategy for launching a career in fundraising.

Topics will include:

  • Myths and realities of nonprofit fundraising
  • Career opportunities in fundraising
  • Key competencies required in the field
  • Identifying your assets and transferable skills
  • Learning job search strategies

Attendees will also receive templates of career planning worksheets that are used in the course, a $50 gift certificate towards any full-day grantseeker training course at the Foundation Center, and a complimentary one-week subscription to our Foundation Directory Online Professional, the nation’s premier grantseeking tool. 

Starting a Career in Nonprofit Fundraising will be held on Friday, November 4th, from 9:00am to 4:00pm, at the Foundation Center.  Please pass on the information.  For more information and to register for the course, please visit The Foundation Center website.
