Fundraising Workshop

Applications are open for a one–day intensive workshop on Fundraising at CEU on Saturday, 4 February 2017 from 10.00-18.00.

The workshop aims to widen the participants' perspective and knowledge on resource mobilization opportunities and to provide participants with practical skills needed to work in the non-profit sector. It provides an insight on how strategic fundraising activities can move organizations beyond the practice of randomly applying for available grants. The sessions will cover the following questions. 

  • What are the basic elements of a sustainable fundraising program?
  • What are the available fundraising methods and techniques and which are the best matches for your organization (community giving, crowdfunding, corporate philanthropy)?
  • How can you identify and research potential donors?
  • What tools and techniques can be applied to pitch and “sell” projects or ideas to potential donors?

About the facilitator:

András Nagygyörgy has been working in nonprofit marketing and fundraising for ten years. After having earned a masters degree on nonprofit management, educational and cultural management he became the fundraising director of Bátor Tábor Foundation (an international network of camps for seriously ill children). His outdoor fundraising campaigns were awarded to the Charity Campaign of the Year three times in a row (Gold Effie Prize 2010, 2011, 2012). The largest charity running community in Central Europe is also closely linked to his name. Before having joined the Civil Support Team he developed his knowledge in a for-profit environment where he was the member of the Milka chocolate marketing team for two years. Currently he is a nonprofit expert at Civil Support Nonprofit Ltd. providing strategic fundraising consultancy at the birth of grassroots organizations, supports the planning and implementation of corporate-civil cooperations, as well as the realization of concrete fundraising campaigns.
