Discover a dynamic, challenging career where you can make a difference in the lives of others by raising money for important causes. In this comprehensive program, students learn to design integrated fundraising programs, run special events, research and secure grants, and develop relationships with major donors. Students also examine critical skills that support the fundraising process, including prospect research, volunteer management strategies, budgeting and financial management, marketing, donor engagement, group dynamics and team building, and use of technology for fundraising. During their academic studies, students gain skills through case studies and projects, followed by valuable real life experience participating in an internship in a fundraising environment in areas such as social services, the arts, the environment, health care, education, sports, recreation, and religion.
