Nonprofit development encompasses all the practices of fundraising and structuring this important function within nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations. Students will learn about the development and financial strategy needed to balance diverse fundraising approaches. Considerations such as an organization’s business model, strategic plan and growth, as well as strategic initiatives and future planning are central to organizing for development activities. Students will examine, using the four pillars of donor relations, different fundraising approaches such as individual solicitation, foundation and government grants, online donations, and future giving strategies to better understand their applications, scale, results potential and impact. Linking development to the financial functions of nonprofits is essential for every development director and staff.
