When grass roots grantees are dependent on an annual -International- grant and are growing from strenght to strength, you might want to offer a Fundraising training to them so they can become less vulnerable. You'll be suprised how generous the local middle class can be! Moreover, local Fundraising has more credibility in its own community, it grows a local constituency and gives pride and ownership to the project and people.
We join global fundraising expertise with local knowledge:
a success formula that enables your Not-For-Profit organisation to create the conditions for success. Because well-run, strong organisations means a better world.

With over 20 years of experience in charitative fundraising, project management and working with international organisations all over Europe but extensively in Eastern Europe, Holland and the UK, I help build your organisational capacity for your non-profit organisation
Through College of Change, I train, recruit and mentor international fundraising teams and junior event management, fundraising and advice/consultancy.
I was lucky to be part of -and nurtured by- NGO's for more than 20 years ago. It all started in the early nineties. when I joined the Dutch Aids Fonds as an activist and organised many Walk for Lifes and World Aids Days,
After 6 years, I moved on to a women’s rights organisation as their first professional fundraiser, became head of Fundraising and Communication for an international development agency and set up the Major Donor programme for the Dutch Cancer Society. In my 12 years in the United KIngdom, I have taken up similar senior positions at International Development charities.
I have been involved with the Session leaders at the International Fundraising Congress in Holland for the last 14 years. I acquired a large network of international contacts and it has enabled me to learn and share experiences with fundraisers from all over the world. As a keen supporter of our international non-profit sector, I am part of the board of policy-making bodies in the Netherlands, UK, Czech Republic, and Slovakia.
Getting a fundraising trainer in?
If you want to keep doing what you're doing, then maybe a trainer is not for you.
Or if your organisation is fortunate and large enough to have its own in-house training, creative and production staff, you may only want to talk to our consultant to get some new ideas, have her to review your results.
If you're the average size organisation with a large ambition, outsourcing some or all of your Fundraising Training needs will help you succeed.
Yes, of course!
Do you want to grow your organisation, get some new ideas and try methods that have been tested and give results? Then our fundraising trainer / coach is the way to go.
We can help you:
- inspire your fundraising
- create more understanding about fundraising in your organisation
- conduct a feasibility study or competitor review
- instill more Fundraising understanding at board level
- work effectively together as a team
- pin down the real and strong emotive case for support
- organise a Major Donor event
- facilitate your strategic planning
- offer mediation and conflict resolution
Depending on the need, we will work with fundraisers, trustees, volunteers and senior management teams. Or, better; a mix of these. Because building the capacity of your organisation is never done in isolation. In one of our workshops, you will learn all fundraising methodologies, discuss the Core Principles of Resource Mobilisation and how to diversify income streams. For different participants we have different fundraising training courses, to help your organisation succeed.
A good facilitator, in my view, is not only responsible for securing active participation from all the individuals in the room, but also for guiding those individuals with different cultures, languages, personalities and work styles to a common outcome. As your facilitator, I will plan & desgin, guide and manage your group to ensure the objectives are met at the end of the session.
Let me guide you through this process and come out with a smile!
You can learn how to create moment of sheer joy, a real feeling of happiness every day. yes, indeed you can learn it. Mindfulness is the energy that helps us recognize the conditions of happiness that are already present in our lives. You don’t have to wait ten years to experience this happiness. It is present in every moment of your daily life. There are those of us who are alive but don’t know it. But when you breathe in, and you are aware of your in-breath, you touch the miracle of being alive. That is why mindfulness is a source of happiness and joy.
More and more leaders need to change from inspirational managment to effective leadership and teams are changing into a 'self-directive' group of workers.
