Summer Intensive in Fundraising
This intensive program prepares you for a career in fundraising or for advancement in the field. This program was developed by Naomi Levine, former chair and executive director of the NYUSPS George H. Heyman, Jr. Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising and former senior vice president for external affairs at NYU, where she helped to raise more than $2.5 billion over 22 years at the University. Topics include annual and capital campaigns, planned giving, public relations, strategies for working with board members and volunteers, writing for fundraising, fundraising research and information management, legal and ethical issues, trends in grantmaking, and fundraising for NGOs. The course includes a site visit to a major New York nonprofit organization, a guided tour of the Foundation Center, and employment and career advice. This program is valuable for fundraisers who want to broaden or focus their skills; for nonprofit board members and volunteers who want to become more effective; and for those considering philanthropy and fundraising as a career.
