Fund Development Academy: Annual Giving


Date: October 2, 2018

Time: 9:00am - 12:00pm

Where: PATH Resource Center
321 Walker Drive, Suite 201 Warrenton, VA 20186


Join Laurie Jarrett Rogers, Independent Grant Writer and veteran CNE trainer to learn how to create and implement a strong annual giving plan. This two-session workshop will provide time to determine how your annual giving functions currently to provide a benchmark for moving forward. Attendance at both sessions is expected.

Participants will gain a solid understanding of:

  • Why the annual giving is considered the front line and foundation of all fundraising;
  • How to prepare for your upcoming year’s annual giving by evaluating the successes from your previous year’s campaign and using a series of known benchmarks;
  • Examples of how to get creative in your annual giving campaign; and
  • How to engage and involve board members and other volunteers in the annual giving process.

Development professionals and other staff responsible for fundraising, as well as board members, are encouraged to attend.

Presenter: Laurie Jarrett Rogers, Independent Grant Writer

Free to any nonprofit staff, volunteers, or board members in northern Culpeper, Fauquier, or Rappahannock counties. Please register at: or call Jenn Sweigart at 540-680-4149.
