Each month, participants come together for a group learning session facilitated by The Funding Seed and dedicated to a scheduled fundraising topic. Group members engage in discussion, share ideas, learn industry best practices, and receive practical tools and homework assignments related to that topic. Following the session, each nonprofit receives 90 minutes of in-person, individual coaching with The Funding Seed focused on implementing those tools, plus an additional 30-minute private check-in call. By joining in both a group learning session and supportive individual coaching, participants have the opportunity to receive well-rounded training that makes real change at their own nonprofits.
The program is also designed to allow participants to raise money as they go. For example, during the month dedicated to fundraising by mail and email, class members write real fundraising appeals for their organizations. As a result, nonprofits that participate in the program learn how to make their fundraising successful for the long term while also raising immediate funds.
Following completion of the program, participants receive their Certificate of Graduation.
Tuition for one participant is $250 per month, $2,000 total. An additional participant from the same organization may enroll with a 50% discount. Payment can be made for the full eight month program up front or can be made in monthly installments.
Each participant is also required to pay an additional $250 attendance deposit, which will be refunded upon completion of the program if the participant has missed no more than one session during the eight month period.
