Fundraising and resource mobilisation


This course will provide participants with all they need to know to become effective fundraisers. It will be of interest to anybody who works in organisations that do not have professional fundraisers on their staff. Participants do not need to be specialist fundraisers to use the techniques explored on the course. Indeed, it is designed for those who have to take responsibility for raising funds while doing many other things.

The course is one of an integrated collection of courses developed by Fahamu in conjunction with the University of Oxford. All effective organisations have a cause: they want to make a difference to the world around them. To do that, they need funds. Developing staff members' capacity to fundraise can make an organisation's mission statement a reality.

Fundraising is not just about writing proposals or collecting money. It is about winning hearts and minds. It is about building a constituency of supporters for a cause. It is about learning to communicate effectively with the public and developing a network of enthusiastic and committed supporters.

The course is divided into two parts: public fundraising and institutional fundraising. The public fundraising module describes how to build a constituency in an organisation's local community and raise funds from individuals. The institutional fundraising module looks at managing relationships with donor organisations and how to manage fundraising activities efficiently.

Each course includes practical exercises and assignments that help participants learn new skills and develop material they can use in their fundraising work. There will be opportunities to practice preparing budgets and doing logical framework analysis.

Orders within the United Kingdom include VAT.
