Just-in-Time Series

Fund Development Strategy

(Just when you need it)

Created and Facilitated by Jack Peterson of Managing for Mission.

This is an AVLI Just-in-Time course. Not only is it just in time for schools looking to ramp up revenues in financially challenging circumstances, but participants can take this facilitated asynchronous course according to their own schedule. It can be completed in 4-8 hour (depending on how deep participants want to go) and is designed for advancement officers, school heads, trustees and future leaders of Catholic schools, or combinations. In six sections lasting about an hour each, participants will learn about the five requisites of successful development: Case, Prospects, Asks, Askers and Resources. While learning proven strategies in each of these areas, participants will also be building a Development Plan for their school using an interactive template. Course includes 30 minutes of free consultation with instructor, Jack Peterson, founder of Managing for Mission, who has been leading in development, school administration and consulting for almost 40 years. Also includes optional video tutorials and downloadable tools for managing development strategies.
