Gratz Online, the virtual campus of Gratz College, a graduate and undergraduate college of Jewish Studies located just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, announces a new Spring semester online course, Fundraising in the Organized Jewish Community.
This course will teach the student how to initiate a fundraising campaign, how to manage and promote it, handle the accounting, and allocate the funds within the organization. Topics include Major Gifts, Planned Giving, Transforming Volunteers into Donors, and Prospect Research. Lectures and relevant case studies from Jewish communal organizations, as well as role playing, will be used to teach the material.
This course is offered as a part of an Online Certificate in Jewish Non-Profit Management, a program designed to sharpen the skills of students in the specialized field of Jewish non-profit management. Expertise in this field of study is increasingly important for those pursuing a career in the Jewish communal world.
You need to act quickly; Gratz Online Spring 2008 Semester begins during the week of January 22. Admissions are on a rolling basis.
