The course is a spiritual app, a metaphoric wireless connection to how to stay in nearly constant fund raising and energy raising mode, using a multiplicity of sources including your energy and that of your boards and allies. This course will address the regular routes of pledge cards and Sundays and campaigns, will imitate the successful strategies of National Public Radio, teach crowd sourcing and crowd funding and show how to raise twice the money in half the time. Yes: effort matters. You will learn the importance of branding, elevator speeches and how to say a lot about yourself in a few good words. You may learn how to rent space with acumen and vigor.You will learn to never say again, “I hate to raise money.” You will learn to say, “I love to raise money.” The course will link the spiritual and the psychological and the theological to the practical, going deep out of the shame we feel about asking for money.
