News from our board member Kelvin Glen from MHA, is that GlobalGiving and the Southern Africa Institute of Fundraising (SAIF) jointly hosted an Online Fundraising Workshop in Johannesburg on 29 June 2017.
SAIF was launched in 1987 and it is the only body representing the fundraising profession in Southern Africa. It is a membership based organisation for fundraisers, registered as a Non-Profit Organisation with the Department of Social Development.
GlobalGiving is the first and largest global crowdfunding community that connects Non Profits, donors, and companies in nearly every country around the world. GlobalGiving makes it possible for local organisations to access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to become more effective and make the world a better place.
The workshop covered the following:
- How to tell great stories for change
- Network mapping
- How to build an online fundraising strategy that is SMART
- Donor Tools
SAIF continues to host a selection of informative workshops and networking events around the country, bringing together fundraising professionals to rub shoulders, and to learn critical skills and share case studies at workshops that are highly relevant to our industry.
