With over three decades’ experience in all aspects of raising funds, the Papillon team offer the service of one-on-one mentoring and capacity building of fundraising staff. Due to the chronic shortage of qualified, skilled and experienced fundraisers in South Africa and the SADC region, The team offer this dedicated and focused mentoring service to build the capacity of one or more staff members in NPOs. This service has proven highly successful, with a number of people and organisations (including those in tertiary institutions) gaining an in-depth understanding of resource mobilisation and their organisations raising substantially more funds as a result.
This service takes between six and twelve months and provides those being mentored with constant, dedicated and tailor-made guidance and advice.
Mentoring does not have to be restricted to only one person in an organisation – for the same fee, NPOs, universities, schools and faith-based organisations are encouraged to allocate a few staff members or volunteers to undergo intensive one-on-one mentoring to both improve their own fundraising, writing, research, planning and all other skills vital to successful fundraising as well as benefit the organisation by increasing the funds raised and generated.
