Power Shift Network Hosts Youth Activist Fundraising School

Mike Strode (OCF)

Posted on October 12, 2021

 Hey Friend,

We know fundraising can be scary, frustrating, and confusing, especially for young folks juggling many things including trying to sustain their organization and community. Which is why we're launching a Fundraising School— participation is limited to 15 spots and costs will be on a sliding scale!

We’re working with fundraisers and activists from across the country to develop this curriculum assembled specifically for young activists ages 16-25 who are working to build up resources to support the critical work that youth climate activists are doing across the country to protect our communities and mitigate climate catastrophes.

Curriculum will include:
  1. Fundraising is organizing. Period.

  2. Communicating your worth

  3. Finding your donors, funders, supporters

  4. Making your ask

  5. Online fundraising

  6. Demystifying foundation fundraising

  7. Shaping your fundraising plan

We wanted to offer this opportunity past our Network because we know how essential fundraising knowledge is for young organizers who are doing the work to mitigate the climate crisis. Priority deadline is this Sunday, October 17th, so apply as soon as you can!  

If you have any questions about this series, please feel free to respond to this email.
