About this Course: Fundraising

Fundraising does not need to be the first course you take in your CDP journey. It will, however, give you a full explanation of many of our important terms, principles, and strategies. Our overriding Definition of Development, our Rules of Development (okay, they’re more like guidelines), and Developmental Indicators will quickly get you started with proven and practical strategies to use in your ministry’s Development plan.

We Want You To:

  • Learn the definition of Development.
  • Learn and apply tracking of your ministry’s Developmental Indicators to chart a course of growth.
  • Learn how to immediately apply the Rules of Development to your ministry.
  • Learn and apply Giving Charts to your ministry to guide fundraising goals.
  • Learn the importance of non-funding programs to support your Development strategies.
  • Learn four strategies used in nearly every Development and fundraising plan.

Personalized Feedback

A member of our expert CDP team will review all your submitted projects and provide personalized feedback on your progress.  Every project uses your ministry as the example. We will help you refine, enhance, and strengthen your plans. Your Course Instructor is easily contacted through messaging whenever you have questions or need help.
