A 2-day webinar for De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) was held online last September 6-7, where we engaged with the members of the Advancement Offices and other fund raising groups of its various campuses. 

Both webinars were held for 3-hours on consecutive mornings. Day 1 comprised of a review of the basic fund raising concepts and principles and discussed the current funding landscape and emerging trends on giving and resource mobilization.

Here, the participants, especially those who considered themselves as beginners in the field of fund raising, were able to build a foundation on what fund raising really is, its components, the process it entails, and the stakeholders who need to be involved.

A number of studies were also presented to provide an overview of the local, regional, and global fund raising environment that the participants can take into consideration as they plan their next campaigns.

Day 2 presented the different online fundraising tools and tips to strengthen their organization's online campaigns. To make the webinars more engaging, participants also had the opportunity to hear from the following DLSP representatives about their leanings and experiences in raising funds during the pandemic:


  • Mr. Robin Serrano (De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde)

  • Mr. Richard Pineda (De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute)

  • Mr. Marco Polo (De La Salle University – Dasmariñas)

  • Mr. Edwin Reyes (De La Salle University Manila)


Our warmest thank you to DLSP, particularly Ms. Marivic Mercado and Ms. Aiye Mariano, for giving us the opportunity to facilitate these webinars! 


We also want to thank the 50+ DLSP representatives from different campuses and units for actively participating, and our four sharers for imparting their fund raising learnings and experiences.


It was a pleasure seeing both new and familiar faces and listening to your insights. We do hope the webinars gave you more ideas for your next campaigns! 


Happy friend-raising and see you all again at our next 2-day workshop planned for the next academic year!
