Principles of Fundraising
James R. Reed Seminar on Christian Stewardship – COURSE ONE
Tuesday, October 4, 2022 – 7:00 to 8:30 pm CT

From Girl Scout cookies to church offerings, to massive university endowments, donating money to support what we value is a fundamental part of American life. Most are familiar with giving, few with asking and receiving. How does an organization seek, secure, and steward donated money? Much trial and error has provided answers, yielding many insights and best practices, which this course will discuss. In addition, fundraising operates at four levels, namely, the individual, social, organizational, and cultural, and it must account for each, which this course will do. If you have a cause for which you wish to advocate, and specifically raise money, this course will help you get better at doing so.
