Team Fundraising

Developing a fundraising toolkit for literacy organisations that reflects the differing contexts and opportunities across Europe is the ambition of the Fundraising Team.
This team manages a plethora of tasks; from researching a range of funding experiences and identifying good practice, to drafting detailed guidance strategies in all things related to increasing resources and targeting them effectively. Team members work in collaboration with the Awareness Raising Team and the Team dedicated to Indicators for Success, especially to line up the piloting of its toolkit with selected organisations.

      Thanks Peter Jenkins and all board members for the vision in standing with people to reach their goals by understanding the heartfelt they feel but because of the lack of sufficient funds, I am one of the people who are dying with heart pain to achieve and reach so many people and be the hand of God to their broken heart. Please receive my million times thanks. by Pastor Charles Mwase cell: 00265884279857 email:
