Webinar on International Fundraising


As the interest in philanthropy and fundraising grows in the Nordic region, it is natural to think about the potential beyond your own borders. Some of the bigger donations to Nordic not for profit organisations also come from abroad, so this is a topic that deserves some special attention.


This webinar on international fundraising addresses questions like:

– What do you in general need to consider if your organisation wants to succeed with international fundraising?

– What can Nordic organisations learn from UK organisations that have worked with international fundraising much longer?

– What are the opportunities and challenges to do fundraising from US sources?


The webinar is aimed at all kinds of Nordic not for profit organisations: universities, charities/NGOs, and the cultural sector.

During the webinar we will get a presentation from three consultants in Brakeley’s international network who share their experiences on international fundraising: Claire Brownlie (based in UK), John Kelly (based in UK), and Gisela Keller (based in New York). You can read more about their professional backgrounds below.

The webinar will be held in English.

Registration and Prize


Participation is free for participants from not for profit organisations in the Nordic region. The prize for other participants is 1500 SEK + VAT.
