enLIGHTen Essentials

Event Date: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 (All day) - Thursday, September 7, 2017 (All day)

Looking for a focused introduction to development (nonprofit fundraising, marketing, communications, and leadership)? Are you new to the field, with zero to four years of experience, or transitioning into the field, or someone for whom development is just one piece of your position? This is for YOU!

A major component of enLIGHTen Essentials is mentoring. Your mentor will be there, making an immediate connection and interacting with you throughout the course and then for six months or more afterward will provide additional support on a project of your choosing. Attendees of previous enLIGHTen Essentials events said how much they loved having a mentor, how it was incredibly helpful to have a mentor there to meet face to face.

You will build a firm foundation for career and mission success learning the fundamentals of fundraising, from the donor cycle to building and communicating the case statement, to working with volunteers, constituents and boards. Featured will be presentations from experienced professionals, sharing skills and knowledge needed to build a firm foundation for development success. 

Learn how to:

  • Develop an Integrated Fundraising Program 
  • Build and Sustain Relationships 
  • Secure the Gift
  • Market for Ongoing Success 
  • Volunteers as Partners
  • Working With Constituents, Boards, and Colleagues
