In-person | San Francisco, CA

This fast-paced session introduces you to a systematic model for building sustainable funding for your mission. Learn to leave a legacy of passionate lifelong individual donors as you tailor the Benevon Model to your organization. Participants are encouraged to bring other staff, board, and volunteers to engage them in this practical and effective approach.

In this Session, you will learn:

  • An overview of the Benevon Model, an organic system for building sustainable funding for the mission of your organization from multiple-year individual donors
  • How to implement mission-focused, permission-based fundraising
  • How to make your organization more visible in your community
  • How to identify and personally cultivate individual donors who are passionate about your mission

Terry Axelrod, founder and CEO of Benevon, has more than 30 years’ experience in the nonprofit field. She created the Benevon Model after serving as the first development director at a private inner-city school, where she designed and implemented the fundraising programs that yielded $7.2 million in two years and a significant endowment. Over the past 20 years, Benevon has trained more than 4,500 nonprofit teams to customize this systematic process for building sustainable funding.

Benevon trains and coaches nonprofit organizations to implement a mission-based system for raising sustainable funding from individual donors. This system ends the suffering about fundraising and builds passionate and committed lifelong donors. The Benevon Model was developed by founder Terry Axelrod, author of seven books and several DVDs, including her most recent book, The Benevon Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting it Right.
