An exclusive online course, part of the UICC’s CEO Programme

A short online course to support cancer organisations navigating the fundraising challenges presented by these unprecedented times. Over the course of three online sessions, this short course will provide a platform for discussion on effective strategies to mobilise resources in times of crisis, sharing of best practices in fundraising, as well as offering new insights and innovative ways to implement them.

In particular, the course will focus on the following themes:

  • Making the case for support in the current resource-constrained environment
  • Getting the most out of your Board of Directors and volunteers
  • Identifying and engaging new prospects

The course has a limited capacity and is offered free of charge to CEOs of UICC full members who fit the target profile and can commit to all three sessions within the course (see below). To be considered, CEOs must fill in the expression of interest form via the link below.

The course will be delivered via the Zoom platform through a mix of expert presentations led by CCS Fundraising expert consultants and group discussion.

To maximise interactivity and peer-learning, the classroom is capped at a maximum of approximately 30 participants. 

Target audience

The course is for CEOs* and leaders of cancer organisations operating as nonprofits. It is aimed at medium- to large-sized organisations (e.g. annual income around USD 1 million), which have professional governance systems and dedicated fundraising resources in place.

*UICC defines a CEO as the most senior executive or administrator in charge of managing the organisation and who is responsible for developing and executing the organisation's long-term strategy and managing the overall operations and resources on a daily basis (whether titled CEO, Director General, Medical Director, Secretary General or else)

Expression of interest
