The Friendraising Workshop is offered by Terry Sherman to all YWAMers to help equip them in the area of personal fundraising. Terry offers an optional extra day to pass on the skills to reproduce the seminar (Train the Trainers, T3).

On this page you will find a current outline of the Workshop and homework that is usually emailed to the participants to be completed BEFORE attending! This page has links to the materials in order to send smaller email and also to introduce the material to a broader audience.

The material may be useful without the workshop, but it is strongly encouraged to find one near you to attend as the learning dynamic will be very helpful!  Terry has also created a "Crash Course in Fundraising" via email - ask her to send it to you if you can't attend a Workshop [1].

Another great option is to do the Online Course using this same content listed below: and
