What graduates say

Kevin Hoeft

Kevin Hoeft

Director of Development & Public Policy, Home Educators Association of Virginia

"Our organization has just started a Development program, and I am the first Development Director. Leadership Institute has provided me with invaluable information on how to build sincere, long-term relationships with potential major donors.  On establishing a major donor program and with key details on how to identify, communicate with and enlist high dollar donors. I learned much from the expert instructors, and the meals, fellowship and accommodations provided by LI were exceptional." 

Jason Heki

Jason Heki

Development Director, ParentalRights.org

"LI's fundraising schools have been an invaluable asset to me and our development department at ParentalRights.org. Much of our growth last year was a result of the specialized training and resources offered by LI."

Paige Scarlett

Paige Scarlett

Development Director, ProLife Action League

"At LI's [fundraising training], I learned not only the importance of prospecting to find new donors, how to cultivate these donors and how to appeal to and engage your current donors, but how to do so effectively, with the biggest chance of success."
