Coordinating Grant Writing with Development Activities

Anyone writing grants for a nonprofit is often involved in a wide range of other development activities and needs to have many different skills to succeed at those diverse responsibilities. Learn about the fundamentals of nonprofit development functions beyond grant writing, including:

  • annual solicitations, capital campaigns, and endowments
  • municipal fundraising
  • strategic planning
  • board development
  • use of consultants and consulting techniques
  • public relations

This class will help you to put it all together with the best and most appropriate resource development opportunities and approaches for a nonprofit organization.
