Fund Training Camp

The Fund Training Camp supports nonprofits’ efforts around fundraising capacity. The grant will award 10 child-serving charitable organizations with weeklong training in building an effective fund development program. The intensive, interactive five-day training course will be conducted by Let’s Build Hope – a local consultancy of nonprofit and fundraising professionals with a proven record in nonprofit transformation.


Interested agencies must commit to participation of the Board Chair, CEO and Development leader. Participants can expect to take away tangible tools and techniques for developing robust fundraising strategies and metrics with perhaps a fresh perspective and approach.
