About this course: Fundraising is crucial for your campaign’s success. In this course, you will write your campaign’s fundraising plan, a detailed list of the revenue sources you will rely on to hit your fundraising (and therefore budget) goals. After you complete this course, you’ll have a fundraising plan and the groundwork laid to raise your first contributions!
When you should take this course: Your fundraising plan and your budget go hand-in-hand, so before you take this course you probably want to have a draft budget－or at least an overall budget goal－and know (ballpark) how many votes you need to win. (Check out our Budgeting & Financial Compliance course if you need help.)
