Happy New Year!
Coffee talks are a monthly session where experts share fundraising nuggets on topic of interest to fundraisers. The coffee talks have proven to be a successful channel for capacity building and lifelong learning for both upcoming and experienced fundraisers as well as platform to network with current stake holders in the development sector.
Organised by the Kenya Association of Fundraising Professionals the Coffee Talk Season 18 theme is From Crisis to Opportunities will comprise empowering sessions to re-tool and equip you with the battery to handle day to day opportunities and the ever emerging challenges in the sector. This year’s talks are particularly important following the global pandemic and the adjustment charities, NGO’s, Foundations and Trusts have had to make. In addition, climate change is becoming a key topic in virtually every development debate. The increasing focus on social entrepreneurship and social business is also gaining traction as more philanthropists and investors are considering this option compared to traditional grants. In this season of coffee talks, you will get to interact with thought leaders, practitioners, and development professionals on the secrets of writing winning grant and social investment proposals in the midst of a myriad of dynamic external forces. It will address challenges and opportunities, the dos and don’ts and upgrade your fundraising arsenal to be in line with global demands. You will learn about mistakes to avoid and activities to employ and gain valuable tips that increase your chances of securing funding for your organisational sustainability. It is a coffee talk season that will change your fundraising life!
