Why Is Fundraising Important In Your Career?

In a sector dominated by charities, the majority of conservation projects are funded by donors. These can include large grants secured from governments and foundations to smaller donations via public campaigns, appeals, events and membership drives. 

The more skilled you are as a fundraiser, the more money you’ll secure, and the more conservation you’ll get done. But few professional and aspiring conservationists have any formal training in fundraising. 

88% of conservationists rely on fundraising

£5 Billion is the biggest ever donation to conservation

>£91 Billion is secured each year globally

If you want to succeed as a professional conservationist, you need fundraising skills.
