Most NGOs face a dilemma when it comes to fund-raising. They need assistance with understanding the various opportunities and new sources of funding, articulating one's cause effectively and confidently to potential funders and donors, and spreading the message about one's work in the wider world and what constitutes ethical fundraising. They also need assistance with how to stay compliant with regards to spending and accumulating funds.
Corporate Partnerships and CSR
This session will focus on how to conceptualise, create, and sustain meaningful NGO- corporate partnerships to bridge the gap and make the relationships effective. With mandatory CSR, corporate foundations need compliance advisory and NGOs need to fulfil the compliance and reporting. How one ensures that they understand each other's perspectives, remain legally compliant and it is a win-win partnership for both.
