National fundraising guru Nancy Bocskor will return to Pensacola to teach RELATIONSHIP FUNDRAISING on Saturday, April 27. The near sold-out workshop she taught for us in 2015 was phenomenal and addressed fundraising for nonprofits as well as electioneering.
During this day-long interactive workshop, complete with role-playing, you will learn how to:

  • Build a functioning fundraising operation

  • Ask for money, even if you hate to

  • Use storytelling to build personal relationships

  • Build a powerful finance team

  • Plan fundraising events that actually raise money
