* Have an outline of the elements needed to make organisational case for support to funders

* Feel more confident in approaching a range of sources of support

“I enjoyed the pragmatic approach very much. I can see how we (staff and board) can proceed. Book yourself on this, it’s worth actual money.”
Fiona Macdonald, Room 13 International

"Excellent. Very well presented and engaging. Very knowledgeable tutor. If you are fairly new to fundraising or feel you need a re-fresh this is a great day to get an overview."
