Syllabus: The step by step process. This mentored nonprofit fundraising program for nonprofits is designed in a progression where each weekly module represents one sequential step for you to take in the process of campaign design and development. The assignments have real tools for you to download, print out, edit, and use as templates over and over again in launching new initiatives. We will take approximately one month for each one of the following core steps:
Month 1. Find Donors: Determine who your potential new donors are, what they are looking for, what you can offer them, and how they can find you:
Begin Weekly Assignments
Month 2. Email List Building. Capture Names: How to capture valuable new subscribers—and then send them newsletters that convert them into donors.
Month 3. Planning online fundraising campaigns.
Month 4. Keywords and Simple Landing Pages: The importance of landing pages, keywords and conversions.
Month 5. Email Newsletters. Romance your Subscribers.
We’ve covered a lot of advanced territory over the past 4 to 5 months. Now it’s time to begin compiling what you’ve learned into an online donation campaign. Hopefully, you saved all of the PDFs from the different assignments for your review.
Month 6. Tying it all together. You will launch and promote your first nonprofit fundraising communication using templates that I provide.
10 People Only. This mentored online fundraising training program is limited to 10 people. We will have weekly communication through my advice and comments on your weekly assignment modules. I will have a monthly private telephone consultation with you so that we can be able to work closely together on your project. I will also respond to quick questions that you send me.
Write Faster to Save Time I’ve created 20 sets of program templates (detailed step-by-step instructions and finished examples of each module for you to use) that you can download and customize to best fit your emerging project. 20 logical steps: No more writing from scratch—just edit and modify my templates to best fit your project.
