“The trainers were very professional and they created a friendly atmosphere that increased the motivation and attention in a good way. I think the course content was excellent: full of facts and examples of fundraising cases. I now have the tools to create the structure that is needed to develop our foundation’s organizational structure and our major gifts fundraising.”
