1. Foundations of Fundraising

Fundraising Ideas for Nonprofits: 205+ Actionable Ideas for Your  Organization – Nonprofit Megaphone
by Gail Dent, NCAA

"The NCAA leadership development staff, in conjunction with the National Association of Athletic Development Directors, has launched a program to further educate women and ethnic minorities interested in learning more about athletics fundraising and development.

Foundations of Fundraising features 30 women and ethnic minority leaders in athletics who will attend nine weeks of virtual courses to learn about fundraising principles, discuss case studies around development tactics, and hear experiences and issues solutions from fundraising experts. The program, which runs from January to April, is structured to introduce athletics fundraising as a career path to young leaders in the NCAA membership and to further educate current athletics development representatives as they step forward to potential senior-level athletics positions. 

The program curriculum will be taught through the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and the Mays Family Institute on Diverse Philanthropy. Upon completion of the program, the leaders will receive a certificate from the NCAA, IUPUI and NAADD. NAADD is the professional development/fundraising organization that is centered in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics."

>> Why It Matters: "Athletics executives have referenced fundraising and development skills as necessary career competencies to ascend into a director of athletics position over the years. However, race and gender numbers have lagged in the industry. Minority men and women represent less than 8% of those in athletics fundraising/development in Divisions I, II and III, while white women represent around 30%. White men constitute around 50%-60% in the industry."

>> What They're Saying: "The Foundations of Fundraising program is significant as it provides education for individuals who want to excel in fundraising and development. It will enhance their skills should they have an opportunity to advance to an executive level in athletics and higher education," said Felicia Martin, interim senior vice president of inclusion education and community engagement."

>> The Key Stat: "Anticipated outcomes from the Foundations of Fundraising program include exposure and introduction of athletics development as a career path and visualization to leadership with this skill set. Program leaders also hope to prepare participating leaders for elevated senior roles."
