VGA is developing short-term, customized training services to support your organization’s fundraising and events. Designed to meet the cost and time constraints faced by nonprofit leaders, VGA’s training sessions will be:


A one-day session, jam-packed with the key skills and insights you need, and nothing you don’t.


A pre-assessment of fundraising or event materials will help VGA’s instructors address your unique challenges. Small class sizes will ensure the focus is on your needs.


VGA is experienced in the nuts and bolts of fundraising and events. We understand the everyday challenges and inefficiencies faced by nonprofit leaders.


Courses will be priced to suit the budgets of small nonprofits, delivering real value and saving money for the mission.

Courses currently under development include:
