Three million NGOs currently operating in India with various development programs and projects. The biggest common challenge they face is scarcity of funds. Hence fundraising is one of the most important challenges NGOs have to integrate in their daily work and routine. 

During the lively sessions in these workshop days participants got to know: Challenges in fundraising; Various methods of fundraising; fundamental principles of fundraising; developing a dundraising “case for support” ; face to face fundraising; fundraising from corporate: The CSR Way

At the end of the three days they understood the principles and fundamentals of fundraising, know how to communicate to influence potential donors, prepare their NGO for corporate fundraising. Participants are now be able to raise more money for the target groups of their NGOs.

A participant from Calcutta expressed after the workshop “Now the different ways and options of fundraising are clear and I do now understand how to use them in my daily work!” A staff member from Nepal pointed out “Fundraising will need a lot of patience and the workshop has given me a lot of confidence that I will manage!”
