    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.

    Regards,
    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 Carolina , I live in Cali, Colombia. Right now I work as an account executive for a multinational advertising company. I choose to enroll in this course because I want to create a program that helps people in my community. I'm still working in defining what would be the best idea for that program that would help the most. At this point what I'm clear is that this program will be made to help women empowerment through leadership programs for a long term, specially those who are mothers head of households with children.
    I hope to gain the basic knowledge to start this program and to get inspired by those who are already involved and working for institutions that help vulnerable communities.

    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

  • Hi everyone. I am Aftab Ahmed Awan from Pakistan. I am working as CEO of Society for Sustainable Development, which is a national NGO in Pakistan. Our focus areas are human rights, gender equality and gender justice and young engagement and empowerment. We are working with a couple of donors and implementing projects in different parts of the country. Personally my areas of expertise include: SRHR, Child Rights and and child protection and organizational development. I have joined this community in order to learn more about fund raising and resource mobilization. I feel that my organization needs to broaden its resource base. We have to improve our fund raising capacity. we have not yet succeeded in generating corporate funding and are heavily reliant on international donors, which in my opinion is not sustainable. I am hoping to learn more about fundraising from corporate sources and help my organization to become more sustainable and strong.

  • Hi everyone, my name is Jane Sloan and I am British but live and work in Ecuador in South America. I own a wildlife reserve and a wildlife rehabilitation centre. I am working with wildlife rescued by the Ministry of the Environment from illegal trafficking. My work is voluntary and I rely entirely on donations to keep going. I am working with many different species such as Howler monkeys, Spider monkeys, Capuchin monkeys, sloths, ocelots, anteaters, kinkajous, otters, parrots, macaws, turtles, snakes, iguanas to name a few!! The situation is quite desperate at times and through lack of money I cannot always receive all the animals that need help. My job is to get as many animals back into the wild as possible - the majority are released onto the reserve so they are protected. Some animals take a very long time to develop the skills to go back into the wild especially if they are raised from tiny baby. Funds are needed constantly for food, medical supplies, equipment, enclosures, enrichment etc etc etc!! I am loving the courses that I am doing on Philanthropy University because they are really helping me to focus on the best ways to raise money and how better to approach potential donors - thank you Philanthropy Uni!!!

    Greetings Philantopians,
    I am delighted to connect with people who care about changing communities in positive ways. I am Eliack Shikamo from North western part of Zambia. Eliack is Registered nurse serving a rural community of Mutanda in Kalumbila district. I live near Chief Mumena’s palace which is 56km away from Solwezi town the headquarters of North western province in Zambia. I have grown with a philanthropic heart as it began with me and my elder sister helping our grand mother in the village of Zangemenu. The interest to help communities became more profound for me when I lost my Baby boy Buwame Shikamo. This influenced me to start a child development organization aimed at helping children and their care givers in the chiefdom of Mumena. Being the founder of the Buwame Child Development Foundation have a big role of seeing the organization grow.
    Being part of the Philanthropic team shall enable me gain more knowledge and skill in advancing the call. Being into the business of helping the community requires sharing notes with other able minds. This will enable me achieve the objectives of starting the concept.

    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
