The Bayou Community Foundation is partnering with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to present a workshop on Fund Development with Individual Donors. This learning opportunity is focused on sharing concepts and tools to help participants design a successful individual donor program for their nonprofit organizations.

This workshop is open exclusively to nonprofit organizations located in and serving Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes and Grand Isle. The content and materials are designed for executive directors, program and development staff, and board members. We strongly encourage organizational teams comprised of a staff member and a board member.  In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The typical methods for raising money from individuals
  • How to engage board members and volunteers in fundraising with individuals
  • Practical tools to support your individual donor program
  • Social media strategies for fund development with individual donors
  • Proven practices in individual donor cultivation and stewardship

Participants will be asked to complete donor profiles as a pre-workshop assignment.
