Capacity Building in Fundraising:
A practical workshop with CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality
How does a youth led organisation secure funding? What do donors look for in an application? How can I develop an effective funding strategy for my cause?
Join the Global Queer Youth Network and CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality this October for a workshop that aims to answer these questions and more.

What is this session?
This session will introduce CHOICE’s toolkit resource, which has been developed through interviews with researchers and a global survey where organisations shared their experiences of navigating the donor landscape in the hope of raising funds to support their work in a variety of challenging contexts. Following an introduction to this toolkit the session will move into a practical workshop where participants will be invited to create funder-oriented items for use in their future activism and advocacy.
