Finding new donors – Research and Networking

  • Venue: Online, Global
  • Training Provider: Philantropia

Many people think, fundraising is all about the proposal – and while the proposal is of course very important, they forget the most important step. Before you can send any application out, you need to find a good donor match and connect with them to learn what they want to see in a proposal and to make yourself known. Without good research and networking, even your best proposal will fail!
