Jumpstart Fundraising Technical Assistance Grant Informational Workshop

October 24th, 2019 | 1 PM - 3 PM PT | Kern County Administrative Building | 1115 Truxtun Ave (3rd Floor Multipurpose Room) Bakersfield, CA 93301

Jumpstart Fundraising is a yearlong program administered by Network for Good (NFG) to build fundraising capacity for nonprofit organizations. In 2020, Kern Community Foundation will once again make the program available to Kern County Nonprofits that have not participated in Jumpstart in the past, through a competitive grant application. The 2020 Jumpstart Technical Assistance Grant will allow five nonprofits to participate at a largely subsidized cost thanks to funding assistance from the Kern County Board of Supervisors.

Jumpstart Fundraising participants receive:
- Twice-monthly one-on-one coaching sessions with a certified Personal Fundraising Coach.
- Donor Management, email blast, and fundraising software to raise funds through online donations, events, and peer-to-peer fundraising.
- Template library for fundraising tools such as fundraising plans, board development exercises, grant writing tips, special event plans, etc.
- Monthly webinars to help you develop and accomplish your fundraising goals.

If you'd like to learn how to raise more money for your general operating expenses while working with limited time and budget, this workshop is for you! You'll learn how to apply for a Jumpstart Fundraising grant and what to expect/what will be expected of you while you're enrolled in the program.
