Online Class: A History and Introduction to Fundraising – Sep 29

Posted by LaSalle Nonprofit Center on September 27, 2022

This class will explore the history of philanthropy in the US, how it has developed up to the current day, and its role in ensuring that equity, diversity, inclusion, access, and belonging exists within the nonprofit sector.  We will discuss current fundraising practices and trends in the philanthropic marketplace and whether the practices of philanthropy and fundraising have evolved with society.  This will include topics such as donor motivation, board engagement in fundraising, and donor retention.  Participants will leave with an understanding of how the historical legacy of philanthropy relates to a fundraiser’s work today and how we might challenge some of the harmful practices to build a more just future for philanthropy and fundraising.

Date and Time: Thursday, September 29, 2022, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
