    Hi, I am Alexandra from Brazil. I believe that books can change lives and I am working hard on gifting Brazilian students brand new literacy books at www.1book4life.com. 1BOOK4LIFE is a great place to work! We are currently setting up a nonprofit organization in the US to raise money for buying literacy books to our students in Brazil (most of them have never, ever, been gifted books before); the organization name is Holistica Foundation. That's why my colleagues and I are taking these courses. We've just finished one of them and we are very excited to keep learning (and raising money!). My current role in the 1BOOK4LIFE Program is Communications Manager (I handle the communications with donors, social media, press, and so on). I am looking forward to meeting you! Hopefully, we will be able to exchange knowledge and experiences so we can grow together. #BooksChangeLives

    Bonjour cher collègues. Mon nom est Rita Baroma Madomba BAMANA. Je suis contente de vous informer que je viens de terminer le cours sur le collègue des fonds. Je suis francophone, et certaines instructions m'ont échappé. Mais malgré ça j'ai trouvé ces cours très intéressants. Je pense que je suis une association avec d'autres collègues ONG à but non lucratif. J'aimerai restée toujours en contact avec vous pour qu'ensemble nous joignions nos efforts pour collecter les fonds et aider nos communautés. Merci beaucoup à l'université et à tous.

    Hello, everyone,
    This is Nelson from Hong Kong, who used to run an online fundraising startup helping other charities and social enterprises to fundraise via Facebook Likes with corporate donation. While I am currently involved in another social enterprise related to green building and healing design, I am still very much into the fundraising idea and would like to fine-tune the model further one day. Here in this community, I really look forward to hearing innovative fundraising experience from learners and practitioners around the globe.

    Welcome @Samuel ! It sounds like Develop a Child Uganda is doing incredible work, and that you're responsible for a great deal of responsibilities that feed into that work. How did you end up getting involved in this work?

Also, if you haven't already, I'd recommend you also check out the Uganda Community of Practice and Community Development Community of Practice as they both may be relevant to you.

    fundraising was not easy at the first year because every Donor need financial report some needs audit report of which without getting any funding you can get this but we manage it through our membership subscription , fundraising is not easy topic because Donors some time they are so selective but once you succeed in any its just keep on flowing
    -the first principal of buying Donors interest is to be well prepare with answer to all their question,
    -you should be creative ,not to copy any objective because they first compare you with other organization ,
    -you should have good capacity
    -you should be honest enough
    -Never show to Donors any risk or sign of being unsuccessful in the projects you need donation for

  • Hello Everyone.My name is Essau Elly from Kenya, working with Eldoret Women For Development (ELWOFOD). I work here as a reformer, role model and provide legal representation to women in court for fair hearing . ELWOFOD is women based Organization founded by 2 women ex-inmates in Eldoret Langas Slum who had been convicted for 6 years for a crime they did not commit with an aim of enhancing reentry of women Ex-inmates into their communities through economic skill development. Many wish to become law abiding citizens and have the best intention of living a conventional life yet most have few job skills, lack a formal education, and experience discrimination in housing and job markets because of their felony records. WOES –“Walking on Egg Shells” seeks to break this cycle by providing agribusiness skills and financial literacy training for women ex-prisoners when they are released. Project WOES seeks to build community, not more women prisons. I am hereby looking to learn more about fundraising and possibly find a partner who can fund our course to give our beneficiaries a more dignified life.

    I am Michael Ochieng Nyawino, a Kenyan living in Kitale, Kenya. I'm the Executive Director of a young NGO called Christian Community Healthcare Foundation- Kenya (COHECF KENYA). I joined this community so that I can learn on how to Fundraize and Mobilize resources for the NGO. I had launched a fundraizing campaign at Gogetfunding.com but it has not been successful still hoping to get more funders to visit the link: https://gogetfunding.com/teenage-mothers-skills-training-project/ and help us with the campaign.

    I would be happy to learn a lot on fundraising and resource mobilization to make me grow the organization.

    Looking forward to talking to many people here.

    Welcome to the Philanthropy University Communities of Practice, @cohecfkenya2017 / Michael!

    You raise a very good question about how to get more interest in your crowdfunding.

    I imagine you have already signed up for the 10-Sept course of Fundraising Strategies in the mean time, @debarns, you just took the Fundraising Strategies course that gives information on crowdfunding. Do you have any tips you can offer Michael?

    Thank you SCOTTM,
    welcome @COHECFKENYA2017, is nice to have you join the community.
    i guess your story line is order, to specific terminologies that is eye catching to donors across board.
    look at the following steps from my own perspective.

    NEVER use the words “could,” or “would.” Always use “will” and “can,” because you are SURE that you will get the money and CONFIDENT that you can do what you say you will.
    DON’T use jargon, unless you know that everyone reading your grant is in your field (for instance, a Department of Education grant). Use plain language, sixth grade rule. Even a word like “articulate” used to talk about making 2 + 2’s will not be understood by Mrs. Viejita Moneybags, in that context, unless you explain it.
    DON’T use too many acronyms. Think of a better way to do it, and reiterate the full name of something, with the acronym after it in parentheses if you haven’t used it in several pages, or if you’ve only used it once before.
    Check your SMART Goals to make sure they aline with your project objectives, SPECIFIC, MEASURABLE, ACTIONABLE, REALISTIC, TIME-BOUND. make your project have goals included in it, then choose the right platform for your campaign in the fundraising.

    please check if this tips are included in the fund raising campaign you lunched and make inclusion were needed. thank you
    this is my own submission, you can still consult higher professional.

    Hi everyone, my name is Favour Ojo-Omoniyi. I work with APIN Public Health Initiatives as a Program Associate-Community Service. I joined this community because I want to learn from you all and also to be relevant to my organization. Hope to be a mentor to girls in my community ( Lagos Nigeria). I am glad to be part of you all.

    Feel welcome to start a discussion or ask questions. Is there a specific fundraising challenge you are facing right now that others might be offer their advise on?
