Fundraising Principles: Raising Money for Good Causes

Richard L. Edwards (Chancellor Emeritus and University Professor)

How do nonprofit organizations raise money? In this seminar you will gain knowledge and skills to help lead student-sponsored fundraising events on campus, in your community, and beyond. Building on fundraising experiences you may have already had in community, school, or faithbased organizations, this seminar will introduce you to the basics of fundraising theory and practice, including special-event planning, individual solicitations, and telethons. Participants will benefit from Rutgers fundraising experts and guest speakers. The seminar includes discussions, role playing, and presentations, and the class will review fundraising events that have been successfully implemented by local nonprofit and public charity organizations.
