Fun-Raising Training

Fundraising is the process of soliciting and gathering voluntary contributions as money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations or governmental agencies. For many fundraising is tough, scary, unknown and confusing. With the right tools, knowledge and understanding fundraising can turn into fun-raising!

Let Fresh Events help you, your organization and your board train and prepare to make the fundraising ask. With our proven Fun-Raising training and tool kit it will take the fear out of fundraising and make you, your board and committee a fun-raising rock stars!

Fresh Events Fun-Raising Training Workshops can be split up into 2 – 2 hour sessions or a 1/2 day workshop. We are available day, night and weekends.

The cost for the training including the Fun-Raising Tool kit for each attendee:

                  • $500 for groups up to 10
                  • $750 for groups of 11 – 20.
                  • If your group is larger we ask that they be split up – the training is most effective for smaller groups because it encourages more dialogue and discussion.
