Online Graduate Class in Fundraising

Fundraising in Nonprofits: Challenges and Opportunities (MSP-661) engages the student in the study of fundraising infrastructure, methods and planning. Starting with philanthropy and universal fundraising concepts, the student then analyzes techniques such as direct mail, email, social media, special events, earned income, corporate giving, major gifts and planned giving. The course is completed with the student creating his/her own fundraising plan based on an organization identified by the student.

This is an online, academic, graduate level class, usually taught by the founder of Nonprofit.Courses, Matt Hugg.
