NPO Fundraising Forum

Do you have the need for regular training and inspiration on how to run your Non-Profit in a more sustainable way? 

Join the “NPO Fundraising Forum” for affordable, in-depth training on a wide range of Non-Profit related matters – focussing on Fundraising and Marketing.

What Is The NPO Fundraising

It is a support system and training platform for people working in the non-profit sector.

It is webinar sessions where you will receive inspiration and online training, tips and skills on a bi-weekly base.

The training will be in the form of 25 webinars which will be available afterwards as online training sessions.

You will become part of a community of Non-Profit organisations where we are not in competition with each other, but supporting each other for the greater good!

When will the training

We will start on Wednesday 2 September 2020 at 14h00.

From there, we will meet for a new webinar every second Wednesday from 14h00 to 15h00.  Should you not be able to attend our webinar, the replay video will be available afterwards to watch at your convenience.

There will be 25 training sessions which will be spread over a year.

If you wish to join this forum, you have to commit for at least 12 months. 

If you join after 2 September 2020, you will have access to all the sessions we already did, so you will not miss anything!

What will the training be

The primary focus will be to empower you with Marketing & Fundraising skills.

The content of the training discussions will cover four pillars, which are essential to the success of all NGOs: People – Technology – Marketing – Fundraising.

In that framework, we will cover as much as time allows us over the 25 webinars. The majority of topics will relate to Fundraising & Marketing.

If you attend the webinars (or watch them afterwards) and implement what you learn, we can guarantee your personal and organisational growth!

How much does it cost & how do I join?

You can join for as little as R33 per training session – depending on how you join (individual or office) and how you prefer to pay (monthly or annually).

You can pay monthly but you have to commit for at least 12 months. For an extra discount, you can pay the annual fee which will cover 12 months.

You can either join as an individual or as an office.

The “Office” option is for people working in the same office, same branch, same town and will allow up to 5 people. This option is to make it even more affordable for organisations with a fundraising department with more than 1 or 2 staff members.


When will we start?

The first webinar will be on Wednesday 2 September 2020 at 14h00.

Should I pay monthly or annually?

Paying annually as a once-off amount will be cheaper. You will then also not have the administration of paying each month, so we recommend you pay the annual fee.

But, if you can’t afford it, it is 100% if you pay each month – as long as you commit to staying part of the group for at least a year.

What if I miss a session?

We would love to have you as part of the live sessions but we understand that life happens and that it might not always be possible.

All sessions will be available online within 48 hours.

Who will do the training?

The training will be done by Annelise de Jager.  To give you additional value, we might also invite other experts in the Non-Profit field to teach on a specific subject.

How often will we have training?

There will be a new online training session every second Wednesday from 14h00 to 15h00 SA time.

There will be a total of 25 online sessions spread out over a year. The training group that you enrol in now, will come to an end on 31 August 2021.

How long will the sessions be available online?

You can access all online training sessions for as long as you are part of the NPO Fundraising Forum.

This means that you can access training on a specific topic, months after we had the actual session. You can watch it as many times as you wish.

I only heard about this now, can I still join?

Yes, even if you only heard about this after we have started, you can still join.

It will cost the same and you will have access to all the online sessions that we already had.

Who should join?

The NPO Fundraising Forum is open to anybody involved in a non-profit organisation.
You can be from a school, church or welfare organisation – as long as you are eager to learn and grow your organisation to make a bigger impact.

The content will vary from the absolute basics to more advanced stuff – there will be something for everybody!!

Will this make me a better fundraiser?

The training is guaranteed to add value to you as a person as well as to your Non-Profit. Finding a skilled fundraiser is very difficult so empowering yourself in this field will without a shadow of doubt enhance your career!
