Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training!

NewMexicoWomen.Org, New Mexico Health Equity Partnership, and Chainbreaker Collective are excited to announce that on Saturday, October 20th 2018, the national organization, Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT) will offer a transformative day-long fundraising training in Española at Northern New Mexico College for organizations across New Mexico.

This is not your average fundraising training! GIFT challenges conventional fundraising by centering grassroots fundraising as an essential strategy in working against oppression towards social justice. The GIFT training, Building People Powered Movements: Grassroots Fundraising Fundamentalswill provide introductory and intermediate fundraising training, including topics such as:

  • The Politics of Fundraising: Unpacking Our Relationship with Money
  • Building Your Donor Base: Grassroots Fundraising Strategies and Proven Practices
  • Social Justice Fundraising & Philanthropy in the U.S.
  • Cultivating Individual Donors & Making the Ask
  • Implicit Bias and Fundraising
  • Creating an Annual Development Plan

This training brings GIFT’s expertise to New Mexico at a deeply reduced cost and scholarships are also available upon request. This training is geared towards supporting and building the capacity of individuals and organizations who are led by or serving communities of color, immigrants, LGBTQ, youth, people with disabilities, and people from low income, border, frontier, and rural communities, as well as organizations with budgets under $500,000.
