The first European Fundraising School takes place this summer in Vienna, with a focus on the core principles of successful fundraising, and major gift acquisition.
The European Fundraising School takes place from 27 June to 1 July at Vienna’s Hotel & Palais Strudelhhof, in partnership with CFRE International. Led by trainers Eva E. Aldrich, M.A., CFRE and Becky Gilbert, CFRE, the School will use the latest research and international best practice examples to help participants maximise their organisation’s fundraising efforts.
The event begins with the three-day intensive fundraising course: an introduction to core methods and principles of successful fundraising. Following this is the two-day major gift acquisition workshop, which focuses on strategic planning, negotiation skills, and the fundraising management techniques necessary to secure major gifts.
