Picking money from the trees- Fundraising Network Meeting 2015
By Sînziana Râșca On 25 June 2015 · Leave a Comment
“Money Grows on Trees”. That might be so, but what kind of trees, and how do you pick them? The Fundraising Network Meeting 2015, hosted by the Danish National Scout Organisation, brought together 21 participants from 14 European NSOs and NSAs to work jointly on finding the answers to those questions.
Three days of intense programme, with workshops, external speakers, open space sessions, rain and sun and sweat were the key to the successful event that happened at Holmen Scout Centre in Copenhagen. The event aimed at strengthening the fundraising strategy of the sending organisations, learning more about the relation with the corporate sector and other types of funding (EU, Scout Foundations etc.).
Three external speakers have been invited with the aim to provide the participants an insight look of the donor’s perspectives. Lars Kolind (board member of the World Scout Foundation) joined the event for a kick-off meeting on “Scouting in Tomorrow’s World”. Focusing on “building the next generation of leaders”, he gave some tips on how to “UNBOSS” old mind sets and develop clear messages towards donors. Dr. Derek Pollard (Erik Frank Trust) and Benjamin Alberti (TDC Denmark), spoke about the importance of developing a real relationship between Scouting and donors to switch from a “fundraising” approach towards “friendraising”.
Before going home, David Hansen (Chief Scout of Det Danske Spejderkorps, one of the NSAs in Denmark) took the participants on an Empowerment Process tour, helping them better define their future steps on “money picking” for their Scout organizations.
“One of the main points I took back from the event is the need to build relationships with our donors and the need to examine how we can have mutual benefits from such a relationship”, said Anton, from The Scout Association of Malta
“This event was very motivational for me with all the speakers and facilitators who gave us a lot of examples of good practices from NSOs/NSAs. During these three days I had some ideas for our next projects and also I established some new future partners for our projects because “together we are stronger”!”, reflected Andrei, from the National Organisation of Romanian Scouts
Until the next Fundraising Network Meeting we hope the participants and their sending organisations will manage to pick a lot of this money growing on trees!
