Type of event
Classroom course



Local Fundraising is a course in which you learn how to mobilise resources within your own community through various sources e.g. local businesses, middle-class donors, local companies and public authorities and many more. During the course, you will develop a fundraising plan for your own organisation and practise the communication skills you require to implement the plan.

The Local Fundraising course is suitable for small and medium-sized social organisations in Kenya.

Licensed local trainers from the Kenya Community Development Foundation (KCDF) conduct the course. KCDF is a Kenyan development grant-making organization, that supports communities to initiate and drive their development agenda by harnessing and growing their resources as well as securing their basic rights and services from duty bearers. KCDF works with poor, marginalised and disadvantaged communities as its primary target group and looks to provide them support in uplifting themselves from their situation through their own efforts. A secondary target group involves organised communities who are focused in looking to uplift themselves in a sustainable manner through asset building.

After the course, participants will have a thorough practical plan which they can implement. For 6 months following the course, participants have access to advice and e-coaching from KCDF.
