It seems like everyone is fundraising these days.

Whether you’ve just signed up for your first fundraising walk-a-thon, are considering a crowdfunding campaign to bring your record-producing dreams to life, or just want to know that it’s possible to raise funds for a good cause WITHOUT annoying your friends - this class is for you!

Join long-time fundraiser and teacher Megan Brauner as she breaks down the components of a friends and family fundraising campaign into manageable, bite-sized pieces that leave you AND your donors feeling happy and excited to be part of a meaningful, world-changing opportunity.

Learn tips for raising funds quickly, efficiently and professionally with minimal ick.  At the end of this class you will have

  • a robust list of potential donors,
  • a plan for how best to communicate with each of them, and
  • a fundraising letter that can be personalized and updated for each of your donors

We’ll touch on emails, events, and why teenagers really ARE the best fundraisers in existence.

Major Gifts Officer | Fundraiser

Hello, I'm Megan, a fundraising professional in Phoenix, Arizona. I've spent my career raising funds for some of the largest and best known nonprofit organizations in the country, including the American Red Cross and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I love sharing the story of our mission and teaching others how to do the same! Outside the office, you'll catch me hanging out with #LazloTheChihuahua and writing too-clever-for-their-own-good second hand resale posts on craigslist.
