News and Resources


In preparation for this 25th anniversary year, we set out to harness the experiences and learnings from the over 1,269 organizations we have trained, mentored and conducted research with. We then converted this wealth of information into a 3-part series of training courses on the various aspects of fund raising, that we will offer throughout 2024 until March next year. The courses are designed to provide the knowledge and skills a fund raising professional needs to know in order to conduct a successful campaign.
