TICONDEROGA — Adirondack Foundation has teamed up with PRIDE of Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce to host a capacity building seminar for nonprofits and community organizations.

The seminar, “Collaborative Fundraising in a Small Community,” will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, Sept. 18, at Inter-Lakes Health in Ticonderoga, NY.

“From healthcare and economic development to arts, culture, recreation and more, nonprofits and community organizations deliver important services to in the Adirondack region,” said Cali Brooks, executive director of Adirondack Foundation. “We’re pleased to offer trainings like this to help these organizations become more effective and efficient than they already are.”

Renowned nonprofit consultant and trainer Andy Robinson will lead the session, which focuses on effective fundraising in small communities. More information about Robinson can be found at

“Eighty percent of charitable funds come from individual donors, not foundations or corporations,” Robinson said. “In this seminar, we’ll learn to build a fundraising program that honors your mission, engages potential donors, and raises more money for the many organizations in your community.”

Topics will include:

  • Where money comes from: Building a diverse funding base
  • Rural fundraising: Looking beyond the locals
  • Addressing myths and misinformation about how fundraising works
  • Shared fundraising strategies you can use with partner organizations
  • Helping your board members become effective fundraisers

“You’ll leave with a dozen practical ideas you can implement immediately,” Robinson added. “This is an interactive workshop, so come prepared to participate.”

The seminar costs $10 per person, which includes coffee, tea, snacks and other refreshments.
