Developing a SMART Fundraising Plan

Planning for vacation? Fun. Planning for a party? Fun. Planning for fundraising successes? Yes, that can be fun too. The trick is S.M.A.R.T. planning (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely). Join us for this jam-packed one-hour session and learn why planning should be part of your fund development program, what to plan for, and how to plan to ensure fundraising successes. We’ll cover the key elements of a good fundraising plan, how to make sure your plan has S.M.A.R.T. goals and three things you can do to engage your staff and board in planning.

Please take a moment to give us your feedback and evaluate this webinar.
