The Annual Fund: Securing Ongoing Donations
Your nonprofit organization needs regular givers. The Annual Fund is the key that unlocks the door to ongoing donations, and consistent support from givers who believe in your kingdom cause. The Annual Fund comprises an array of development initiatives to secure regular giving to your organization. This module will provide emerging development professionals with a good understanding of the role of the Annual Fund in engaging and solidifying donor relationships as part of a diversified development program, and to equip them to take their program to the next level.

Lead Like Jesus
This module is designed to help the participant learn what is needed to develop the heart, head , hands and habits of a great leader with Jesus as the model. The readings, videos, and other materials are designed to help the participant uncover what might be keeping him/her from realizing full leadership potential while helping develop those skills and habits needed to become a leader who leads like Jesus. Lead Like Jesus’ definition of leadership says that “anytime you influence the thinking, behavior or development of another person you are engaging in leadership.” So whether you are a stay-at-home parent, a teacher, a CEO, an administrative professional, an electrician, a nurse, a coach or church leader, you are influencing the lives of others and that makes YOU a leader! *This is a required course for an Outcomes Leadership CORE Certificate.

This module is designed to help Christian leaders understand what branding is and why it matters to their organization. It will help participants create consistent brand experiences and build long-term value in their organization. Upon completion, the participant should have a better understanding of the principles of branding and how they can strengthen their organization by driving its success and impact.
