Crash Courses in Youth Ministry


It comes with the territory. Even if fundraising is not listed on a youth worker’s job description, it’s there. Creating effective fundraisers will maximize the return on your investments of time, energy, and coordination. You will practice how to evaluate fundraiser effectiveness, review overused and ineffective fundraisers, learn how to ensure fundraisers are tax deductible for donors, and discover seven new and effective fundraising strategies.
