WTF - Where's the Funding?
Fundraising is the lifeblood of most community organisations, yet it's an often-neglected task. Most organisations draw the majority of their income from just one or two sources, and that's a dangerous strategy. If one of those sources dries up, you could quickly face a budget black hole
"Where's the Funding?" is an affordable online compact course run by Our Community designed for grassroots fundraisers. Drawing from the Seven Pillars of Fundraising, this ICDA course will help participants identify all the many sources of income available to their organisation and give them confidence to start drawing from each of them.
The course costs just $55 and is delivered via a smart learning management system which allows you to complete the course at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing.
