Whether you’re passionate about education, animal rights, or cleaning up the environment, starting your own charity or nonprofit organization is the perfect way to have a direct impact on your cause.
You may be frustrated by large organizations and NGO’s because you feel they aren’t adequately addressing the real issues – or you don’t approve of their spending. Or, you may feel excited by the idea that you can work hands-on to make a noticeable difference.
Whatever your reason, starting your own charity or program is a great way to encourage involvement, spread awareness in your community, gain valuable business experience, and create the positive changes you want to see in the world.
The Fundraising Diploma Course takes you from a complete fundraising novice to having a good knowledge of the methods and sources of fundraising and the necessary skills to create an effective fundraising plan that can be implemented straight away.
What is a fundraiser? What do they do? What traits, skills, and knowledge do you need to be successful? Where can funds be raised from? All these questions and more are answered in the Fundraising Diploma Course.
This course lays out all the information you need to know to become a professional fundraiser. In addition to the fun parts of the role, this also includes learning about the rules and regulations that you will be expected to adhere to. This set of standards is based on the ‘Code of Fundraising Practice’ developed by the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and the Public Fundraising Association (PFRA) and it will ensure you operate legally and ethically.
The course explains contemporary and traditional methods of fundraising and the various donor sources available; outlining the benefits to both giver and recipient in each case. You will learn what trusts, foundations, legacy donations, and major donors are and gain insight into the event and corporate fundraising.
The Fundraising Diploma Course gives particular focus to 3 types of fundraising: direct marketing, community, and social/digital. You’ll learn about the various media that direct marketing fundraisers use, how to write the appeal and thank you letters to donors, and the metrics you need to be aware of to manage and evaluate campaigns. You’ll explore the opportunities, challenges, and benefits community fundraising presents, be given hints and tips on being creative with this form of fundraising and examine how to recruit and deal with volunteers and organize your own community fundraiser. Social fundraising (fundraising on digital platforms) is relatively new. You’ll discover how it has become successful, how it operates through social media and “crowdfunding” platforms such as Kickstarter and CrowdRise, and how to start your own social fundraising campaign.
Putting your newly-discovered knowledge to use, the Fundraising Diploma Course guides you through developing your own simple and effective strategic fundraising plan that can be put to use in a real-world charity or organization.
