Fundraising Training & Coaching

Behind every successful fundraising effort is a team of dedicated board members, staff and volunteers, working in concert to achieve a shared vision. These people are united by a common goal – and their passion for the work of your organization is the most valuable asset in your fundraising program.

With the proper training and coaching, you can transform your board, staff and volunteers into powerful champions who are able to approach fundraising with confidence, clarity of purpose and enthusiasm!

Through our work with a diverse range of clients, we know there is no single approach that will work for every organization, or indeed, every individual. Whether you are looking for training for your entire team, or key individuals who are supporting your fundraising program, we work with you to maximize the impact of the people who fundraise on your behalf.

Volunteer Ottawa Executive Seminar Series: Engaging your Board in Fundraising

November 9th, 2017

Good Board engagement in fundraising can make all the difference to the success of your fundraising program. Your board can and should provide additional capacity and resources to reach out to a broader community of donors, in helping to raise your profile with the right people and in increasing your organization’s credibility as a force for good in the community. But do they have the willingness, skills and tools to help them do this effectively? In this session we will identify the barriers to board engagement, and how they can be overcome so that your fundraising can thrive.
