What is the Great Fundraising Masterclass?

Great fundraising allows you to achieve audacious growth of your organisation’s mission. Substantial growth that increases your income by two, three or four times over a period of years. Formed by a unique mix of academic research and case studies from around the world, the Great Fundraising Masterclass pays particular reference to the Great Fundraising Report, available on the Alan Clayton & Associates website. It’s highly energetic and participative, and will leave you inspired to pump up your fundraising.
Non-profit organisations have attended the Great Fundraising Masterclass from Australia, United Kingdom, United States and Europe to discover their ambitions for growth.

You will learn:

– How massive fundraising drives the mission of your organisation, and vice versa.
– How organisations unite behind and become proud of their fundraising.
– How to release massive investment in fundraising, and what this investment can achieve.
– How your leadership drives fundraising performance, and how you can become a great fundraising leader.
– How to support a continuous learning culture as the secret to innovation and growth.
– How to find the single proposition that unites and drives your organisation.

Who should attend?

If your organisation is ready to make a significant leap to grow your mission then you will want to attend. The masterclass is suitable for social impact organisation leaders and those responsible for fundraising and financial sustainability, including CEOs, fundraisers, board members and trustees.
