Fundraising is relevant for all not-for-profit activities and becomes increasingly important in times of crisis when budget cuts and financial restructuring are the new normal. Organisations are forced to rethink fundraising and not only consider strategies to find resources from government, private donors, or corporate enterprise. But smart fundraisers take it a step further and reflect on all aspects of the organization and how to make these marketable.


Alix Masson is Head of the Policy Development & Advocacy Department of the European Youth Forum since September 2012. Before this she served as the Director for External Relations and Funding for the World Organization Scout Movement for almost four years. In this capacity she managed to raise over a million euros for numerous projects. Trained in law and as a journalist,  she currently specializes in civil society organisation’s management and policy and advocacy.
