"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

"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
