Testimonials (GlobalGiving UK crowdfunding training)

“The training had considerable impact in terms of advising us where to look for donations and how to approach donors as well as how to publicise our project.” Book Relief

“IHMP has received an overwhelming response to our fundraising efforts. We have received more than we had ever expected. The training sessions conducted by you and your colleagues were very helpful in realising this goal.” Dr Ashok, IHMP

“Discovering this course and all the straightforward, effective, free advice to help implement our aspirations was fantastic. We instantly raised loads of money for our charity by following the clear advice given at the workshop. I would love to take most of the credit but it simply rolled in!   The results really have been amazing; not only have we raised more than we ever thought possible; we have reset ourselves bigger goals; we have boundless unstoppable drives of energy; great things are not just possibilities or as they sometimes felt impossibility they are happening quicker than ever.”
