Elements of Fundraising Training – Denver

A comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of nonprofit fundraising

Grow your development program and raise more money for your mission

American Philanthropic’s intensive fundraising training seminar is designed for new nonprofit development professionals, as well as other nonprofit leaders looking to brush up on the fundamentals of development. This in-person training covers a range of development topics at an introductory level, giving participants a general overview of the foundational principles and essential practices of successful nonprofit fundraising. After the group training sessions, participants receive a one-on-one coaching session with an American Philanthropic consultant.


Join us for our next Elements of Fundraising seminar in Denver, Colorado this summer! The training sessions will be held in downtown Denver, with additional opportunity for hospitality and good conversation at nearby local restaurants, plus an optional outing to catch a baseball game at nearby Coors Field. Participants traveling to Denver for the training will have access group rates at the Oxford Hotel, or can choose to stay at another of the many other hotels within walking distance of the training location.

The experience

In an intimate small group setting, American Philanthropic’s seasoned consultants will teach you how to find new donors, nurture strong relationships with existing donors, build strong foundation and major donor programs, and more. You’ll schedule an hour-long one-on-one coaching session with one of the session leaders to discuss your particular fundraising challenges and questions and identify ways to help your nonprofit succeed. In addition to the group training sessions and personalized advising, you’ll also have the opportunity to meet peers facing similar challenges, enjoy wonderful meals together, and explore downtown Denver.

Come away from the training with a solid understanding of:

  • How to approach fundraising and develop a healthy development culture
  • Basics on how to find new donors and keep the ones they already have
  • How to establish or grow strong major donor and foundation programs 

Participants also receive a comprehensive course manual with additional information and tools to reference again and again after the training.
