[NEW EPISODE] Is Fundraising Outdated?

This week, we are interviewing 3 prominent leaders who has maximized the effect of fund raising, to help the marginalized people in the field of farmers, weavers,and artisans.

Critics argue that fundraising must start to modernize, and by modernize they mean charities rethinking and rebooting their relationships with donors and embracing the new opportunities afforded by digital technology. Charities need to "pivot into new territory" and move away from raising their incomes in very similar ways.

"Just as there isn’t only one business model for the commercial sector, nor should there be for charities," Fundraising, has reached a point of peak uncertainty. "That’s not at all to say that there aren’t organisations really maximizing the existing ways of fundraising, but in terms of longevity and in terms of where the sector will be in 10 or 12 years time, it is necessary for us to evolve."

Apart from giving this wonderful platform of expressionism, we also envision raising funds to support these causes mentioned above and for our special Covid Heroes.
