Interested in learning about FundRaiser before buying? We offer a special live web-based Tour
FundRaiser webinars are state-of-the-art live virtual meetings between you and our senior FundRaiser Training technician. These sessions are designed to help get you up to speed very quickly. They are so much better than the old methods of learning by trial-and-error or by reading manuals and help files.
Because the webinar occurs on your own computer, it also keeps your training costs down. No travel, lodgings or meals. Classes are conveniently scheduled in one-hour segments, with you sitting at whatever computer works best for you. We’ve found the one-hour length is ideal to get into a topic, yet not overload you with too much information at one time.
Sessions are scheduled every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 10am and 3pm Central time.
You will need a current Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP) and one training credit for each session, except the Overview session which is free to all users with current AMP.
This is a fast, simple way to get an introduction to the program. The Overview session is free, and never uses up training credits and can be taken as many times as you like. For those who are brand new to FundRaiser, we find that it can be very beneficial to take this class twice. The first session gives you a good orientation as to where things are and how things work. The second time you take it, you will pick up lots of useful details that you missed the first time through. We also offer this session recorded in our Customer Portal.
Many topics are offered in Webinars. Scheduled sessions are posted monthly. The most important sessions for new users are
If you are using one of the modules, like pledges or membership, you may want to take the training on that after you have gotten a sense of the program in a larger way.
Our Starter Training Package is included with each purchase of Spark, Select and Professional. The Starter Package includes four training credits and one CD with a recorded Overview session. Training credits are used to "purchase" training sessions. With the exception of the live Overview, which is always free, all sessions require one credit. You can always purchase additional training credits for $50.00 each by calling your Sales Representative, or upgrade to our Premium Training Package for $250. This package includes four training credits and three recorded sessions on Video CD.
