Exponential Fundraising: Mobilising Resources

Back to schedule

Session Description

Too often, fundraising is seen strictly as a way of raising money. It is based on a consumer model designed around a buyer (the donor) and a seller (the organisation). As a result, relationships are built on expectations, needs and external circumstances, not on mutual accountability, collaboration and internal growth. Exponential Fundraising reconceptualises fundraising as not only mission critical, but a vehicle to fundamentally transform organisations and the people who are involved with them. Join us to discover the abundance of resources ready to be moved towards your work and partnership collaborations.
