UNA Credential in Fundraising and Resource Development (online)

Your donors love your mission, so help them show that love by carefully and intentionally planning your fundraising and development efforts with the UNA Credential in Fundraising and Development. You'll align your work with your donor's desire to support the causes, communities, and missions they value.

Course Description and Learning Objectives

Nonprofits provide donors with ways to support the community, causes and organizations they value. As agents of philanthropy, nonprofits have ethical and fiduciary obligations to handle funds appropriately, honor donors' wishes, and have sufficient funds to carry out its mission. Fundraising and Development is one of nine courses in the UNA Credential Program designed to provide you with the resources you need to make an even greater impact.

This course builds the capacity of your fundraising and development program. The course covers four main topics:

  • Ethical and Effective Fundraising: Do you take a best practices and highest standards approach when generating resources?
  • Funding Diversity Strategies: Do you have a diverse funding portfolio and/or are you diversifying your portfolio effectively?
  • Resource Planning and Evaluation: Do you have an effective goal setting, planning, and evaluation process?
  • Staff and Board Roles: Do you involve stakeholders effectively and appropriately?
