Day 4 -Introduction to Donor Solicitation: Tools & Practice

Thursday, June 16 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am • Organized By Washington University in St.Louis
Online Event


Solicitation skills are important to an organization’s success.  If you are new to resource development or have never been formally trained, this class will provide a strategic framework to consider how to create your value proposition and tailor your approach.

In five days, you will learn basic skills in developing and implementing a strategic fundraising program, including setting goals, choosing fundraising techniques, interfacing with staff and volunteers, data management, and evaluating results. Using a case statement as a foundation and creating a solicitation plan with supporting materials, participants will grow their confidence in “making the ask” by understanding basic principles of human nature.

This series is offered by: Washington University Brown School of Social Work. 

Registration Fee: $400 - $650
