Finding new donors - Research and Networking

Research and Networking

Many people think fundraising is all about the proposal and, while the proposal is of course very important, they forget what has to come first: knowing who you are writing to!

Before you can send an application or write a proposal, you need to find a good prospective donor and connect with them to learn what they want to see, what they are currently interested in. Without good research and networking, even the best proposal can fail and you could waste time on a donor that is not a good match.

We have decided to package two of our most successful courses to give you the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills in both of these key areas of fundraising. This course bundle gives you access to the Donor Research AND Donor Networking courses.

In this course bundle you will learn:

  • The fundamentals and importance of donor research
  • Donor research best practices
  • How to organize your donor research
  • Donor networking strategies
  • The benefits of donor networking
  • Connecting with and engaging donors
  • How to write cold emails that get through to donors
  • Strategic donor networking to improve your fundraising

This online course consists of:

  • Video lectures with tips and tricks from instructor Erik Detiger, who shares his insights from over two decades of experience in the field of fundraising
  • A quiz that will make sure you understand the course and absorb the skills
  • Cheat sheets with key information for reference
  • A workbook that will help you to implement the learned lessons in your daily work
  • Samples and templates for key documents

Who should take the course?

  • NGO managers and executive directors
  • Fundraising and development professionals for local and international NGOs
