Fundraising 101: Donor Research and Baller Asks

Session Type(s): Training

Training Tag(s): Basic Digital Organizing

Improving your fundraising is critical, whether you’re running a small grassroots campaign or running for office. Our exercise-based curriculum will help you learn hands-on how to research donors and ask for money more effectively. And when progressives can raise more grassroots dollars, we win more. It’s that simple. This training received rave reviews at Netroots Nation last year, and we’re excited to offer it again!

This training is for all audiences. The training is geared toward beginners and includes basic information on grassroots organizing and campaigns.
