Tuesday, April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm • Organized By SCORE - St. Louis Bi-State Region


Interested in starting your own nonprofit organization? Join this workshop to learn the basic steps to open a 501c3 and the basics of fundraising including the nature of nonprofits, prospect research and management, annual giving strategies, donor cultivation and stewardship, budgeting and goal setting, special events, and more. This session will be taught through a community-centric fundraising lens, and the presenters will use real world experiences and best practices to guide the workshop.
