Building successful goals
Is your project SMART? With a recap on creating realistic and achievable goals, we examine the structure of projects, how they fit into your organization’s goals. We also will examine how to analyse and segment your outreach.

Expanding your donor base
Thinking about new methods of donor acquisition is crucial to our fundraising. This session will build on bringing new donors to your organisation by covering diaspora giving, touch upon stewarding major donors, and converting our one time donors into recurring investors.

Messaging your Mission
How would you describe your nonprofit in two sentences? Two paragraphs? What about two pages? Solidifying your core messaging helps you communicate your work clearly and helps donors understand exactly what they need to know. This session will help you refine your core messaging, experiment with A/B testing, and elevate your brand’s image.

Preparing for year-end fundraising
Preparing for #GivingTuesday and beyond, this session will incorporate the work of our previous sessions. We’ll be looking at what “year-end” means around the world and providing concrete case studies of effective year-end preparation.
