RAISING YOU MONEY!

Every good fundraising should be a donor!

Running the Bristol 10k on behalf of a client

Valentine made the training fascinating and his real life examples really brought the theory to life.  He covers the main techniques involved in major donor fundraising but also ensures the smaller but no less critical elements are in place, even his insistency in getting the database systems right was invaluable.   I was a little daunted at first when I saw the areas we would be working on but Valentine made every stage clear and ensured I was able to turn theory into real working systems at my charity.  With his help, I have already started developing my networks and solicitation plans.
