While trust-fund babies, Instagram influencers, and climate deniers always have someone to turn to for cash, for the rest of us, bringing our projects to reality means spending weeks and months raising the money. That’s why we are putting together a one-day workshop with a German expert to get you schooled in the ABC of fundraising for non-profit projects.
We promise, this will be your most profitable Saturday of 2019.
The workshop „Fundraising in Germany: Strategies for NGO representatives and social entrepreneurs“ is designed to train non-profit project managers (NGOs), social entrepreneurs, conference organizers, members of social clubs, community organizers and artists everything one needs to know about fundraising in Germany.
The workshop sessions focus on developing practical skills and address the following topics:
– accounting basics and legal considerations
– publicly available fundraising tools and resources
– pitching to sponsors and crafting sponsorship opportunities
– identifying decision-makers and communicating with stakeholders
– developing project pitches and support packages
– common fundraising mistakes and misconceptions
Workshop participants will be introduced to key fundraising concepts and methodologies, find out about the specifics of working with governmental programs, commercial companies and individual donors, hear case studies of successfully implemented projects. After the workshop you will have custom-fit tips and methods for successfully fundraising your favourite project!
### Lecturer ###
