Sustainable Funding Program

Sustainable Funding Program

Over 5,000 Teams Trained, More Than $1 Billion Raised

After successfully implementing the Benevon Model the first year, your organization will have a better sense of the fundraising potential—and complexity—of our seemingly simple model and may choose to join our five-year Sustainable Funding Program in your second year.

The Benevon five-year Sustainable Funding Program is our special training and coaching package designed for groups serious about developing a culture of engagement and a robust major gifts program. Staying with the model over time, your organization will significantly increase funding from individual donors year after year, building a strong major gifts program, funding for capital, and endowment.

Our upper-level Benevon five-year Sustainable Funding Program begins with Benevon 201 and includes:

  • Five annual workshops of successively advanced content and coaching, customized to the needs of your organization
  • Special online training for your new team members as they join your team each year
  • Create a step-by-step plan for attaining long-term financial sustainability and community engagement
  • Attend a two-day workshop each calendar year for five years with your team of eight to ten people and receive private coaching every eight to ten weeks each year
  • Train new team members with the Benevon New Team Member Intensive to bring them up to speed on the Benevon Model for non profit fundraising, so long as they are all from the same local office as your original team and will be doing their fundraising together at one Ask Event
  • Attend national conference calls with other Sustainable Funding Program participants to discuss specific challenges and best practices 
  • Lock in our current tuition rates
  • Assure Benevon's commitment to support your organization in attaining sustainable funding
