Learn how to develop fundraising strategies for your projects through an intensive highly interactive two day online fundraising training course.
Investing into building your own skills and understanding about how fundraising works is crucial for your funding success.
Working with NGOs and social enterprises, we identified that an accelerated short training course would benefit nonprofit organisations as well as socio-environmental enterprises. We have developed a Live Online Fundraising Masterclass that provides all the essential skills, tools and frameworks necessary to maximise your fundraising efforts.
Join our interactive online fundraising training course to learn the fundamentals of why and how donors give, and how to meet their goals correctly. Through the training you will learn how to write a fundraising strategy, understanding of the most common fundraising challenges and how to overcome them.
