The Importance of Development Training

The ability to raise money is one of the keys to building a sustainable and relevant nonprofit. Yet many organizations rely on someone with little experience and/or no formal development training to lead their efforts. Often, that person doubles as executive director or as communications manager.

Our Training Helps

Joining Vision and Action’s Development Intensive is designed for current Development Directors, sales and marketing professionals searching for an encore career and emerging young nonprofit professionals looking to step into their next development position.

All sessions are taught by JVA experts in the field who share with you what they know works (it’s not just theory). Development Intensive will not only advance your career, it will also help your organization raise more money.

Topics include:

  • Creating a culture of fundraising
  • How to identify and develop the strategies that are right for you
  • Effective left-brain/right-brain messaging
  • Engaging everyone in the organization in fundraising
  • Understanding generational (and other) differences among prospective donors

You will leave this fundraising training with:

  • The tools to build a sustainable fundraising program
  • The ability to engage everyone in your organization to help
  • A binder of reference materials
  • Access to additional resources from Joining Vision and Action
  • A peer network

This development training will put you on the fast track to success. Sign up today!
