The intergenerational transfer of wealth and the explosion of non-profits have seen the rapidly professionalising industry of fundraising reach new heights.
Develop a competitive advantage in fundraising by adopting tried and tested fundraising strategies and learning how to organise and execute successful Capital Campaigns.
This programme presents the essential tools for raising philanthropic funds, with a particular emphasis on the mechanics of running a capital campaign and organising an effective Board.
Raising money for philanthropic causes is a process of Research, Cultivation, Solicitation and Stewardship. Understand the various ways that funds can be raised and become an expert fundraiser by arranging a workshop or engage us for one-on-one coaching.
