Win-win Relations, Recognition & Resource mobilisation

WHAT IS THIS COURSE ABOUT?

As donors are diminishing their funding, NGOs need to find alternative ways of generating support from their external environment in order to increase their influence and to sustain themselves. Communication technologies and our rapidly changing world provide new opportunities for engagement and outreach. Hence, support-raising is more than just fundraising, it is about relationship building, recognition (become more visible in your domestic arena) and resource mobilisation. It covers the identification and mobilisation of all kinds of support, including voluntarism, moral support, political and policy support from individuals, governments, the private sector and other NGOs.

PARTICIPANTS

This course is aimed specifically at staff working for NGOs as well as desk-officers in relevant donor organisations, universities or government bodies who want to contribute to better embedding their organisations into their local environment for increased domestic support and organisational sustainability.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

This course focuses on your organisational needs for successful support raising. First, support raising needs to be defined and identified what it means for your organisation. Then, you will learn how to map the main stakeholders and context you are working in and you will be equipped with tools and skills to formulate concrete strategies and action plans on DSR. Lastly, you will get insight into writing proposals and writing styles. Besides working on strategies for your own organisation, this course will reinforce your skills.
