International School of Fundraising

The International School of Fundraising is the Leadership Institute's premiere international program, bringing together top experts from around the world to provide four days of intensive training in every aspect of fundraising. This program is designed for conservative leaders, activists, candidates, NGO executives and staff -- anyone currently or aspiring to raise the funds to put ideas into action.

This exclusive event is held only once each year.

The HOTEL NH MADRID NACIONAL provides the perfect venue for the 2017 International School of Fundraising, centrally located across from Madrid's main railway station and easily accessible from the city's main airport. This program gives you the opportunity to develop and enhance your skills to effectively raise funds for candidates, parties, and causes.

Every member of the expert faculty for the International School of Fundraising has years of experience leading in their respective fields of fundraising. More than 30 presentations, panel discussions, and interviews will cover the full range of topics including developing fundraising strategies, trends in fundraising, raising funds online and in the mail, corporate fundraising, capital campaigns, using video for fundraising, donor stewardship, and much more.

In addition to the skills you receive from this program, you will meet like-minded leaders and activists from around the world, all in the heart of one of Europe's leading capitals.

Following the program, all participants are invited to attend a banquet dinner on Friday, July 21 from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM.
