Elements of Fundraising
The intent of the training was to introduce participants to the fundamentals of Fundraising. Fundraising is a topic that is not covered in any of the current classes offered at the School for International Training. Many students are pursuing careers in the nonprofit sector where organizations rely heavily on Fundraising. The training was designed to fill the gap that exists within the course design. Proposal writing is an element of Fundraising that is included in Project Design and Planning course therefore the training only briefly touches on this form of Fundraising. In addition, the training seeks to empower individuals to play a role within their own organizations in the realm of Fundraising, regardless of their position.
