Courses are tailored for fraternal foundation volunteers who are eager to amplify their impact on fundraising efforts. Whether you're new to fundraising or seeking to enhance your existing skills, sessions will offer valuable insights to drive successful philanthropic endeavors.


Courses will be conducted via a user-friendly online platform, allowing participants to join from anywhere. The 90-minute sessions will comprise a mix of presentations, breakout group discussions, case studies and Q&A segments to ensure an enriching and participatory learning experience.

Each session will empower you to craft compelling narratives that resonate for your donor prospects.


Led by a trusted industry facilitator with expertise in nonprofit management, board governance, strategic, fundraising communications and legal writing, sessions promise insightful exploration of persuasive techniques.

With a proven track record of empowering fiduciaries to become effective advocates and fundraisers, Kelly Wesley Taylor will lead interactive discussions, provide real-world examples and hands-on exercises.
