Start + Grow Your Nonprofit

If you participated in Building Endowments 101, you are familiar with the infrastructure required to manage and administer an endowment for the long-term sustainability of your organization. Now you need to prepare to raise money to build that endowment, and then get out there and do it!  In this session, we will discuss what makes fundraising for endowment different from raising money for annual operations, how to do it effectively, and how to integrate endowment development with your other fundraising efforts.  Please join us!

Presented in partnership with the Community Foundation of East Central Illinois.
