Securing sufficient funds is essential for any food bank to survive and grow. Like product donations, the preference is to have a diverse range of funders and not be overly reliant on one or two key donors.

In this session, FoodForward South Africa (FFSA) will explain the sources of their funding, and how they cultivate long-term partnerships.

Following the presentation from FFSA, we will have a group discussion so we can learn about the challenges you are facing with fundraising and identify support GFN and our partners might be able to provide.
