Course Description

Enhancing Communities Learning Series 2019 - Training for the Nonprofit Novice
The Enhancing Communities Learning Series (ECLS) is a professional development program of Temple University Harrisburg. The series offers you a convenient way to learn about important and relevant issues affecting nonprofits while enjoying a meal with your colleagues in the community. ECLS provides more than a chance to passively listen to presentations. We encourage you to be part of an interactive process of discovering new talents, opportunities and resources in the community-all while making the community more aware of your organization’s work. Each workshop in the series includes a meal and networking opportunities; announcements from participants; and a topic germane to nonprofit capacity building or community issues.
This series offers four different workshops (each requires individual registration)

Course Outline

Join fundraising master trainer, Chad Barger, CFRE, for a workshop focused on actionable solutions to common fundraising problems. Chad will reveal the most common barriers to effective fundraising at the small community-based organizations that he serves and provide tips for overcoming them. Attendees will also be given free access to document samples and templates which will help to fast track the implementation of these solutions. Ample time will be reserved for questions so that attendees can also pick Chad’s brain for solutions to their “not so common” fundraising challenges.
