The annual fund serves to establish a base of individual donors that can involve, inform, and create connections with others to your organization. It secures a steady flow of income for programs and services, and provides a launching point for further fundraising efforts beyond this baseline.
Participate in this series to learn what contributes to a successful annual fund strategy.
This CNE class was empowering and eye-opening almost from the first minute, and has taken me from a place of dreading fundraising to one of understanding that it is our opportunity to truly know and engage our constituents and friends. Our trainer was thoroughly versed in her subject, and used every opportunity to amplify our understanding as well as remove our fear about tackling some of the most important work we do for our organizations: Ensuring their health and well-being.
