Visiting Peace Corps Volunteer conducts workshop on fundraising basics


Peace Corps Volunteer Erin Dowland conducting a session on fundraising

The Window on America Center in the Kirovograd Oblast Research Library Named After Chizhevsky is always looking for ways to reach out to the community. Today we were able to do so when Erin Dowland, a visiting Peace Corps Volunteer, conducted a workshop on “Fundraising Basics”.

The audience for the workshop consisted of representatives from libraries, a museum, and non-government organizations. So there was great opportunity for discussion on how to effectively work together.

Because Ms. Dowland has a number of years of experience in fundraising, she had a great deal of information to share with attendees. Topics covered in her workshop included:

  • Non-Governmental Organization Development
  • SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) Analysis for your organization’s fundraising
  • Unique Fundraising Opportunities
  • Creating a Fundraising Plan
Ms. Dowland was also able to answer questions about fundraising methods, best practices, and strategies for making sure your organization has the strongest project possible.
The Window on America Center is very grateful to Ms. Dowland for taking the time to visit us and provide us with this valuable knowledge!
