Major Training Opportunity for Fundraisers in Dublin this October

In what promises to be a productive autumn season for Irish fundraisers, Trinity College’s Centre for Nonprofit Management will be staging a major fundraising skills-building programme over the course of five days in October: “'Principles and Techniques of Fundraising”.

Taking place from the 20th – 24th October in the IMI Conference Centre in Sandyford, Dublin 16, the programme is an initiative of both Trinity’s Centre for Nonprofit Management and the Center on Philanthropy from Indiana University in the United States.

The five-day programme aims to give attendees the foundation and inspiration to help nonprofit organizations to successfully achieve their funding targets. Designed as an intensive A-Z training programme, classes will be structured in such a way as to allow participants the opportunity to interact as much as possible with the instructors and other participants.

Participants in the programme will learn how to:

  • Identify and validate prospective donors
  • Manage the fundraising process
  • Use research to match a donor’s interests and needs with your nonprofit‘s mission and goals
  • Build an annual fund donor base that keeps on giving
  • Recognise planned giving benefits to your donors and to your nonprofit organisation
