CoOp impact in Greece: NGOs ask for more fundraising workshops

Asset Tec organized the second Multiplier Event of the CoOp project, on 23rd July 2019. The event took place at the premises of the NGO “Mazi gia to Paidi” with the participation of 12 fundraising experts from various youth organisations and NGOs.

After a short introduction of the participants and the event objectives, the day started with the general presentation of the CoOp project (partners, milestones, activities). During the next session a detailed presentation of the project outcomes and deliverables took place, with special emphasis given to Research key findings, selected Best Practices, the CoOp Training Toolkit and videos uploaded on the CoOp Vlog.

The session ended with the presentation of the CoOp Ready Tools for Fundraising, giving the opportunity to the participants to pilot one of them, the Business Model Canvas, taking a taste of the international training for youth workers that took place in Athens, at the beginning of this year. The participants were split in three groups and worked with a project idea, which they presented then to the plenary.

The event concluded with the presentation of the Policy Brief for Greece, where the participants shared their concerns, reflections and suggestions for further improvement and promotion.

The feedback from the participants was enthusiastic and they asked to organize a new event – one or two-day training – in October, in order to invite also other NGOs’ fundraising experts and have the opportunity to train and familiarize themselves with more fundraising tools, fact that indicates the impact and the sustainability of CoOp project.
