Expand Your Fundraising to Meet the Needs of These Weird Times
No one knows exactly what impact the recent elections and appointments
will have on fundraising, but it is a sure bet that your nonprofit organization will need more money and that competition for charitable dollars will increase. Creating or expanding a robust fundraising program is imperative in these unreliable times. The good news is that raising more money is possible.
In this workshop you will learn:
- why focusing on individuals builds power as well as income
- how to build a team of people willing to ask
- why sorting your donors into segments will lead to more loyalty and more income
- how to get donors to find donors
- Choosing the best strategy for your nonprofit
This workshop will be most helpful to organizations with an established donor base of at least 100 donors, and will work best if more than one person comes from your organization.

About the FUND's Youth Making Change Program
Youth Making Change (YMC) is a teen-led grant-making program providing young people with the opportunity to engage directly in organized philanthropy (giving grants). Each YMC Board (one meets in Santa Maria and one meets in Santa Barbara) gives out $15,000 in grants to projects led by youth that impact young people in Santa Barbara County. YMC board members are teens ages 13-19. They create and conduct an entire grant cycle from start to finish and then share what they have learned as grant-makers and philanthropists with their communities. Each YMC board is led by two Youth Facilitators who are previous YMC board members. Facilitators assist the board in meeting its objectives; as well as provide an experienced youth perspective on the grant-making process. Since 2008, YMC has awarded $187,500 to 104 youth-led groups throughout Santa Barbara County. Youth Making Change is a program of the Fund for Santa Barbara, inspired by the Santa Barbara Foundation's Katherine Harvey Fellows Class of 2006-2007.
