Course Overview
In NGOs, where resources are stretched and time is short, it is possible to overlook the basics when it comes to fundraising and income generation.
Sometimes we are not able to step back and take stock of what skills lie within our existing team, and what and where the gaps lie. To strengthen fundraising and create a firmer financial foundation, you need to know where you are now. You need to know what your strengths are, where are the weak spots, and where improvement is needed.

The course outlines the following aspects:

Planning Your Proposal

Recognize what you have achieved so far

Impact, Outputs and Outcomes

Identify where you can make improvements

Understanding the Funders

Presentation, Style and Format

Be clearer on what skills are needed to achieve your fundraising objectives
