How can I fundraise?


Here are a few ideas on how to raise money:

Convince Your Boss To Send You

  • Are you itching to attend one of our courses, but aren’t sure how to approach getting approval from your boss?

  • Asking for funds for a personal development activity is a delicate thing, but just remember that it’s all about being persuasive and communicating how the course will benefit your organisation. 

  • Below are some simple steps we’ve put together for you to help justify your request:

    • Step 1. Familiarise yourself with the course details and outcomes. 

      • Before speaking to your boss, make sure you do your research. You will want to familiarise yourself with key information about the programme. Including dates of the course and the time you will need to be away.

    • Step 2: Look for our course content and values that align with your leadership development goals, and your company’s overall goals and objectives. 

    • Step 3: Outline the benefits of attending.

      • Be prepared to articulate the benefits of attending – both for yourself and for the organisation. 

    • Think carefully on what you will take back to your organisation. Try to make the benefit as tangible as possible.

    • Don’t forget that networking aspect has real value too. You will meet trusted peers that you can ask questions of, when you are back in your office.

    • Step 4: Prepare a formal request letter to your boss.

      • A well-crafted letter that includes all important information regarding the course will be key to helping your boss make an informed decision regarding your attendance.

Contact a community organisation


  • Organise a charity event: Plan a fundraising event such as a charity concert, talent show, bake sale or movie night through your local movie theatre. You can also organise a charity auction by soliciting donations from local businesses or individuals and auctioning off items to the highest bidder. 

  • Host a challenge or competition: Organise a challenge or competition such as a trivia night, a 5k run, or a basketball tournament. Charge a registration fee and offer prizes to the winners.

Don't be afraid to ask for help and support. Remember, part of leadership is being willing to step out of your comfort zone and take action. With a bit of creativity and persistence, you can find ways to raise the funds you need to pursue your course and achieve your goals.
