Small Shop Fundraising Workshop Series

Five-session series; cohort limited to 15

The NYC Chapter of AFP is excited to offer a workshop series focused on small shop fundraising.  

Join us for 5 sessions that focus on leading practices for smaller development shops.  Each session will bring an expert from a nonprofit who will share how to manage and grow a thriving fundraising program. You will leave with concrete ideas, tips and strategies you can implement in your own program.

In addition, cohort members will learn and share with their peers how to successfully navigate fundraising challenges unique to the professional in a small shop setting, as well as develop a network of support to address future stumbling blocks. 

Please note that this is a five-session series and individual sessions are not available for purchase. We ask that registrants can commit to attending all sessions.
