Annual Fund Series

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.

Time commitment: Five three-hour sessions in September and early October 2019

Class size: To maintain an engaging learning environment, CNE caps all Advanced Trainings at 24 participants. (Note: Member applications will be given priority for all Advanced Trainings.)
