Course Summary

Are you thinking about a career in fundraising so you can make a difference for a cause you care about? Are you already in the field, but you are looking to advance or try a new facet of fundraising?

Or do you work for a nonprofit that is looking to hire a fundraising person and are not sure what to look for?

Fundraising is one of the hottest careers in the world, and I applaud you for entering this noble profession.

I left a career in banking to enter the nonprofit sector at a nonprofit university. What I learned in my banking career helped me in fundraising, but I knew I had a lot to learn about philanthropy. And I worked hard to learn it! My hard work paid off; within five years, I was a CFRE and running my own consulting firm.

This course is my opportunity to teach you what I’ve learned, including how to avoid mistakes that can hold you back. You will see what it means to work in the nonprofit sector, the options available in the field of fundraising, and what it takes to advance. You will know what type of fundraising jobs are within reach, what you need to land a job, and what you need to be successful at it.
