The AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course provides new fundraisers—those with up to
four years of professional experience—with an intensive introduction into the building blocks
of effective practice. To design this 16-hour course, experienced fundraising professionals
evolved AFP’s introductory programs to address the real-world needs and challenges non-
profit organizations face every day. This intensive program, held over two days, will provide an overview of skills, techniques, and program components for individuals with 0-4 years of fundraising experience or a great “back to the basics” for veteran fundraisers. The course is organized into seven modules:

-Overview of Fundraising
-Developing an Integrated Fundraising Program
-Marketing for Ongoing Success
-Building & Sustaining Relationships
-Securing the Gift
-Volunteers – Partners in Fundraising
-Management & Accountability
-The course is worth 16 CFRE continuing education credits.
