Increasing Fundraising Self-Sufficiency of NGO’s Working with Stigmatized Groups
July 2, 2017 - July 6, 2017
On July 2nd, the Cleveland Council on World Affairs will welcome members from six Russian humanitarian NGO’s for a program entitled “Increasing Fundraising Self-Sufficiency of NGO’s Working with Stigmatized Groups.” The program will allow visitors to explore methods used by their U.S. peers who have encountered and overcome similar fundraising obstacles. While in Cleveland, the visitors will meet with several NGO’s who work with stigmatized groups in the U.S. to share success stories and ideas on how to foster partnerships with educational institutions, religious groups, and the government. Visitors will leave Cleveland with knowledge on how to forge partnerships for effective fundraising and overcome negative societal attitudes that can stand as a barrier to stigmatized groups being the recipients of aid.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
