Learn how to make money for your organization WHILE making money for your organization!

How does a small, grassroots, nonprofit organization grow to become a thriving, $1,000,000 organization? Beyond understanding basic fund development strategy and donor engagement techniques, how do nonprofits arrive at the $1,000,000  level?

Learn all of this and more with our newest educational series “How to Make a Million.” This topic will be broken down into three classes, “Building,” “Growing,” and “Maximizing,” where experienced leaders in the nonprofit sector will guide you through the process of taking your organization from ideation to its fullest potential.

Each class will be stuffed to the brim with helpful strategies and tools for your nonprofit and will end with a short, class-related trivia game. The winners of these games will be invited to participate in a final “Who Wants to Make a Million” game-show, hosted live on Facebook by Greg Tish from Real Talk 93.3. Contestants will compete for prizes that they can use for their organizations’ mission and goals!
