Both departments are critical to the financial viability of the organization, yet they view the revenue generated from grants and donor contributions quite differently. How many times have you scratched your head when comparing your agency’s financials to the fundraising reports or been asked by a board member to explain the difference? This course offers the answers. It will provide proactive tips in structuring grants and donor requests to ease the cumbersome back office reporting, as well as how to craft a meaningful budget. Recommended for Development, Finance, and Executive Directors, this course will allow participants to share experiences and learn from best practices.

Metal Clay – Silver @ Pioneer Craft House

Silver is the new gold–and not as pricey. Join in on a new jewelry making craze–with metal clay. Nearly everyone can create beautiful silver wearable art in a couple of two-hour sessions. This remarkable clay can be formed much like ceramic clay; it can be stamped, carved or impressed with diverse objects to create unique patterns and designs. The first session involves forming and embellishing the jewelry components. The instructor fires jewelry pieces between weekly sessions. Finish your pieces in the second session, fashioning them into artful creations, whether a pendant, pair of earrings or bracelet, ready to wear.
