Mobilizing Community Resources. Workshop Outline and Course Description.
Mason, Joan L.
This combination workshop guide and course description is intended to equip persons belonging to nonprofit volunteer organizations with the skills required to develop an action plan for identifying community resources and mastering effective methods of obtaining support for volunteer programs. The training emphasizes that 80 percent of fundraisers' time should be spent in the preparation of putting together the resources and 20 percent should be spent on the actual process of solicitation. The packet consists of a lesson plan, transparency masters, handouts, checklists, questionnaires, training exercises, tip sheets, and reprints of journal and newspaper articles designed to accomplish the following workshop objectives: (1) to present a historical perspective of American philanthropy; (2) to instruct participants in preparing an organization for the mobilization process; and (3) to train participants with principles in methods of soliciting support from the private sector (corporations, foundations, and individuals).
