Tapulanga Foundation once again brings to Negros a planning workshop wherein organizations will equip themselves with the fund-raising capacity. Mayan Quebral, Executive Director of Venture for Fund Raising will be conducting the one-day workshop. Last year, more than 40 individuals from 27 different organizations all over Negros attended the workshop on “How To Fund Raise” also presented by Venture for Fund Raising. These are some testimonials from our workshop last year:

I've applied the little learning I got from last year's seminar and got at least 3 donors who have sponsored 2 college students to finish and complete their last semester last year. – Willie Villanueva, Cedar College

The things that we learned from the workshop challenged us to do more in our efforts to fundraise for The Negros Museum. We study, calculate and manage risks in a given situation for us to maximize the potential for a fundraising activity. With effective communications, relationship marketing and improved online presence, we were able to do several major and minor fundraising events for the year 2011. – Nina Bonilla, Administrative Officer, The Negros Museum

I learned that fund raising is an art in itself. There are so many ways to go about it, and so many techniques. But mostly, I realized that we have to find a way to make every person understand our mission by simplifying our messages, creating a bigger impact. Sometimes less is more. – Kaila Ledesma-Trebol, Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc.

This year’s workshop will include the following:
• Overview of basic fund raising principles and strategies, marketing communication theories and practices;
