This one-day course is designed for board members to learn about aspects of fundraising responsibilities including cultivation, solicitations, stewardship, evaluating development success, engaging consultants and best practices to oversee a fundraising operation.

This course meets the prerequisite requirement for the Comprehensive Fund Development Certificate and the elective requirement for the Leadership Institute for Nonprofit Executives (LINE) Certificate.
