The Boston University Professional Fundraising Program online delivers the same proven, comprehensive curriculum as our classroom program, only in a faculty-led online, interactive, multimedia environment. Those who prefer to study at the time and location of their choosing will benefit from the flexibility of the online program. Students receive input and guidance from instructors with distinguished careers in fundraising. This is a 12-week program that consists of six, two-week long modules. Topics covered include: Fundraising Overview, Annual Giving, Major Gifts, Planned Giving, Corporations and Foundations, Capital Campaigns, Support Services, Prospect Research, Management & Accountability, Volunteer Leadership, and Technology-enabled Fundraising.

While students start and end each module on specific dates, they can login to the program at any time of the day or night. Instructors guide students through the online course materials via required participation in discussion boards, email, and course announcements. Within each module, there are specific due dates for assignments and quizzes. Students who are most successful in the online course are self-motivated and comfortable with technology.

The Professional Fundraising Program online is offered in September, January, and May.
