Receiving education and knowledge directly from fundraising professionals who each have different personal and professional backgrounds was rewarding. The course allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of the basics of fundraising. (…) The AFP Fundamentals of Fundraising Course is also a great way to connect with other persons working in the field of philanthropy.

It was a wonderful and helpful experience to take the Fundamentals of Fundraising course with AFP, and I am grateful for the support of their scholarship. This opportunity was timed particularly well. Autisme sans limites is going through a period of development and consolidation and an important part of this is establishing our fundraising strategy. (…) After taking this course, I have better tools and feel more confident in my ability to both articulate and advocate for the breathing space needed to do this important work, thereby creating new space to help take our organisation to the next level.

Being new to the world of philanthropy, this course allowed me to acquire the knowledge and tools necessary to develop my fundraising skills. It enabled me to expand my contact network by creating links with both the trainers – who were experienced professionals, and the other participants. Although the course was given by videoconference, the educational aspect was well preserved. The trainers created a space for constructive dialogue, which allowed the participants to go into depth in the subject. They were competent, dynamic and passionate, which greatly facilitated the understanding for all.
