JCamp 180 GIFT Fundraiser's Training

JCamp 180 GIFT Fundraiser's Training is structured to provide an understanding of theories of fundraising, tools for implementation, and individual action plans.

GIFT was designed in response to requests from camps to have an in-depth training for development professionals. At the core of the program is participation in a community of practice and small group calls designed to share best practices, successes, and challenges.

Through an intensive schedule of highly interactive online and face-to-face learning opportunities, participants will be actively engaged in developing and executing breakthrough projects, personal development plans, and overall organizational fundraising plans. Through this process, they will build a network of peer relationships. They will leave with the understanding and skills to help transform their camp into one with a strong culture of philanthropy.
