Understanding Philanthropy – Based on the manifesto of philanthropy written by Robert Payton and Dr. Michael Moody, this course examines the unique influence and impact of philanthropy as “voluntary action for the public good,” including the voluntary action of charitable giving that is at the heart of fundraising.
The Art of Fundraising – Our founder, Dr. Henry Rosso, defined fundraising as “the gentle art of teaching the joy of giving.” This course goes beyond the specific tools and techniques of fundraising to teach the “amazing skills” of fundraising such as active listening, empathy, emotional intelligence, and additional others-focused skills that are central to connecting with donors and understanding their motivations.
Fundraising Ethics – Fundraising occurs at the speed of trust. This course teaches and applies ethical principles that form the foundation of trusting relationships with donors.
Effective Leadership, Successful Fundraising – Explore how to develop a compelling vision, lead change, and coach implementation. Lead your team effectively and lead up to your supervisor and board of directors persuasively. This course will teach you how to lead with confidence!
The first CFRL course will be offered this summer. More details coming soon!
