The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge wanted to create a training series for nonprofit professionals and their board members. This progressive community foundation had a big-picture vision for helping nonprofits in the community build their fundraising capacity and brought us in to conduct a training series. Our topics included role of the board in fundraising and how to engage volunteers and staff in making a major gift ask. We included plenty of time for Q&A and specifics for application to attendees’ particular nonprofits. The foundation received really positive feedback from attendees, who expressed appreciation for receiving such practical guidance.
