This year’s European Fundraising School will take place in Berlin as well as Vienna this summer, led by Eva Aldrich, president of CFRE International, and Bernard Ross, =mc director and author of Breakthrough Thinking for Non-Profit Organisations.


The Austrian Fundraising Association’s European Fundraising School takes place in association with CFRE International. The programme will give fundraisers at all levels the opportunity to learn how to improve and professionalise their fundraising and find, win and retain corporations, major donors and general supporters on a long-term basis.


This year, the School will take place for the very first time in Berlin from 19-20 June 2018 in cooperation with the German Fundraising Association & Fundraising Akademie. The School will then move to Vienna on 25-29 June.


The Berlin event will be a two-day workshop, Developing Major Gifts, with Eva Aldrich, which will show attendees how to address the challenges in developing major gifts to achieve greater success.


Vienna will see two courses take place. A three-day Fundraising Intensive course will run from 25-27 June with Eva Aldrich who will give an introduction to the core methods and principles of successful fundraising. Aldrich will cover proven techniques in fundraising as well as strategies for building long-term philanthropic sustainability.


Following this, Building your Major Donor Journey with Bernard Ross will last for two days, from 28-29 June, and will give participants the skills and confidence to explore the opportunities offered by the growth in High Net Worth Individuals and Ultra High Net Worth Individuals.
