Fundraising and Development UNA Credential Course Description:
Nonprofits provide donors with ways to support the community, causes and organizations they value. As agents of philanthropy, nonprofits have an ethical and fiduciary obligation to handle funds appropriately, honor donors' wishes and have sufficient funds to carry out its mission.

This badge builds the organizational capacity of your fundraising and resource development program. These 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?

Learn more about this course and for Fundraising and Development Badge requirements. 

This course is one of nine UNA Credential offerings. Each course is designed to move your organization to the next level in adopting and following best practices--resulting in a vibrant, sustainable nonprofit. We encourage you to invite staff, volunteers, and board members to accompany you. Expanded participation broadens perspective, builds cooperation, and lightens the workload. UNA's Credential in Fundraising and Development provides state-of-the-art information condensed into two days of classroom instruction taught by our Subject Matter Expert, Lisa Maxwell. You’ll take this deeper understanding back to your organization and begin to apply it to your policies and practices. Then you'll reconvene at your consulation with our Subject Matter Expert to review your practices and ask questions specific to your organization. Once you’ve documented best-practices at your organization, your organization earns the Fundraising and Development Badge.
