Benevon 201: Cultivating Individual Donors

After your first year's success, your organization will likely be eager to move on to a more complete implementation of each component of the model. This two-day intermediate workshop refines each aspect of the plan you designed in Benevon 101, with a focus on:

  • Cultivating donor relationships
  • Refining your Point of Entry Event
  • Asking one-on-one
  • Engaging your board

Benevon 201 is designed to more deeply integrate each component of the model into the long-term, daily life of your organization.

This full-year program includes a two-day workshop and private telephone coaching with your team every eight to ten weeks.

Prerequisites: Benevon 101, registration in the Sustainable Funding Program, and meet Curriculum Benchmarks and other Benevon 201 Requirements for Team Composition.

This full-year program includes a two-day workshop and private telephone coaching with your team every eight to ten weeks.

Benevon Advanced Sustainability Workshop

Having experienced impressive results from major gifts, your group will now see that sustainable funding is within your reach.

  • Unrestricted operational funds
  • Major gifts
  • Capital
  • Endowment

In the highly hands-on Advanced Sustainability Workshop, coaches work closely with your group to customize the next level of implementation, focusing on specific financial benchmarks.

This full-year program includes a two-day workshop and private telephone coaching with your team every eight to ten weeks.
