Get better at asking for money! Toni is offering “Sponsorship: Asking For Money For Your Organization” Wednesdays, Sept. 26 through Oct. 17, through SRJC Community Ed. Class meets 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Cost is $121. Class is listed under Business Skills in the SRJC Community Ed Bulletin, and the SRJC Community Ed Course List online.
The four week class meets on the Santa Rosa Junior College Santa Rosa Campus.
Toni has been developing successful sponsorship programs for various events and nonprofits since 1989, and has taught at Sonoma State University Extension, University of Oregon Extension, and provided workshops through CalFest, California Main Street Association and the California Downtown Association.
She will walk students through how to prepare for a sponsorship or fundraising project, who to ask, materials needed, how to ask, how to feel comfortable asking, and how to make it most likely the donor or sponsor will give again next year. Students can develop a plan over the four weeks, or bring their existing plans to add new ideas and updates.
Both nonprofit staffers and volunteers found this class helpful last spring.
