The late Simone Joyaux once said, “Plan for today’s realities and tomorrow’s probabilities.” If we want to stay sane in the insane day-to-day fundraising world, no matter how small or large your organization is, you need a comprehensive, well-written fundraising plan. This presentation and free resource tools will help you learn to develop a strategic fund development planning process that is practical, productive, and meaningful. 



“I just want to tell you that of all the webinars out there now, you were the most influential and I learned a great deal of new information! I have been in fundraising for 20 years and greatly appreciate your enthusiasm and tips. I came back; took your advice; used your plan and I am following it exactly! Thanks for making an impact on me personally and my career!”

What great ideas that are timely, relevant, and easy to implement. Thank you for being a wonderful resource to the NonProfit Community!”
