Workshop conducted on Local Fundraising
Under its Empowering Grassroots initiative, Smile Foundation conducted a comprehensive workshop on Local Fundraising (LFR) for seven grassroots organisations from across the country.
The training covered a wide range of topics, including understanding the concept and significance of LFR, exploring different sources of income, donor identification & appreciation, effective communication, institutional fundraising, proposal writing, and creating organizational collaterals.
Through interactive sessions and practical exercises, participants had the opportunity to develop their LFR plans, create teams, and present their ideas. The training provided an effective platform for these organizations to enhance their fundraising efforts and achieve their goals in a sustainable manner.
