On February 18th PJC youth welcomed special guest Fawn!! As a nonprofit consultant and longtime supporter of NC FIELD, Fawn shared her expertise with PJC youth on grassroots fundraising.
Youth learned about the ABC’s of Fundraising
Access – people you already know or have a solid connection with
Belief – people who share similar interests or believe in the mission of the organization
Capacity – people with the ability to give.
Youth also worked on their personal statement with support from Fawn and NC FIELD staff. Through this statement they drafted their delivery speech in asking for donations.
This month’s workshop focused on careers in the nonprofit sector. Youth learned about where funding for nonprofit organizations comes from and how funds are used. Youth will continue this work as they prepare for their first annual PJC Youth fundraiser so stay up to date with us!!
