Securing your Future with a Fundraising Plan
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Facilitator: Non Profit Training
There is little doubt that the pandemic has made it hard for groups to fundraise. This timely session will help your group to review your current fundraising practices and look to secure your future with alternative solutions. Non-profit organisations often have a limited amount of money at their disposal and if one income stream comes to an end; sometimes it can also be the end for the organisation. At the end of this session, participants will have constructed a three-year funding plan that fits.
Topics include:

Reviewing the right approach for a community organisation;
The skills that are needed to succeed;
Who is responsible for what;
Pros and cons of different modes of fundraising; and
Embedding fundraising as part of the everyday.
