Need to raise more money? Remember the Essentials.

If you're charged with raising funds, you know that it can be an overwhelming task! The Association of Fundraising Professionals, Western Pennsylvania Chapter is a great resource for information and support. This summer, the Bayer Center for Nonprofit Management is teaming up with AFP to bring you the nationally recognized Essentials of Fundraising Series.

The series is ideal for anyone seeking to understand the knowledge and skills required to successfully raise charitable funds for a worthy cause.

Join us on August 18, 2006 for two modules:

Starting an Integrated Development Program 9 a.m. to 12 noon
Instructor: Lisa Young, CFRE; The Salvation Army

Is your nonprofit working to build a diversified funding base? If you're looking to create a strong foundation for future giving, this class will outline board/staff roles, donor motivations, assessing current efforts, crafting a compelling case for support and shaping a plan to guide your work throughout the year. It also serves as great background for newer staff, volunteers and board members seeking to understand the complexities of securing philanthropic gifts. Veteran fundraisers know that planning your work is the key to reaching philanthropic goals.

Identifying and Soliciting Annual Donors 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Instructor: Teresa Gregory, CFRE; Consultant

Annual gifts are the life's blood of most nonprofits and many organizations have potential to grow their donor base! But there is more to a successful annual giving campaign than sending a letter every December 1. This workshop will help participants think through their annual calendars, through their contact lists and their agency's operations to determine the most successful strategies. We'll also discuss the importance of stewardship- communicating with donors and understanding their needs and interests, too.

Cost per session is $50, or attend both and pay just $75 including a light lunch.
