change through radical generosity for the glory of God.


Our coaches have a combined 50+ years of experience in fundraising, marketing and general nonprofit operations. We are thrilled to help you grow as a faith-based fundraiser! 

As you raise more funds for your mission, the Kingdom of God advances. This excites us! 

It's time to change

your mindset about fundraising!

"Flagship Fundraising Academy has been a gift from God in every sense. As a small organization, we needed a lot of help and training in all areas of fundraising and marketing and FFA has provided that abundantly. With so many tools, resources and especially “wise guides” we are changing the way we do things and becoming the organization that God is calling us to be. I highly recommend this course to every Christian non-profit no matter what size, God is truly working through Flagship!" - Ellen, Emmaus Journey

"Flagship's Fundraising Academy was an answer to prayer! We have needed a way to train and encourage our staff and board members in the area of fundraising, and the online sessions were extremely helpful to us all as we serve God in our ministry to children." - Janet, Child Evangelism Fellowship

"If you are just starting out as a fundraiser, or have been doing it for years, Flagship Fundraising Academy provides the necessary training to succeed in your role." -  Aaron, Regina Youth For Christ

This was an incredible training experience! I enrolled with the passion needed to change lives and graduated with a level of awareness, strategic thinking, and resources I need to transition my positive intention into outcomes. Highly recommend pursuing this course of study!!! - Kathy  Hambrecht, House of Hope Maryland

"Flagship Academy's courses were all relevant to what is going in within my own organization. The resource materials alone are an incredible value and are very applicable. I took the course starting in January and it was a great way to kick start the new year!
