On November 4, 2015, we organized the second “Connect to the world! DFP TALK” at Omote-sando, Tokyo. The guest speaker was Ms. Yumemi Shimosato, Representative and fundraiser of “Dream supporting NGO Araji”. Her topic was the basis of fundraising.
Ms. Yumemi Shimosato explained how she became interested in fundraising while also giving examples of various methods of fundraising other companies and organizations are applying successfully.
After her presentation, we got into small groups and discussed ideas of how to fundraise using resources available all around us.
One of the most striking messages from Ms. Shimosato was, “Fundraising = Raising the amount of Fun”. Fundraisers collect not only money but people and business opportunities.
Thank you very much to our speaker, Ms. Shimosatao, along with everyone else who attended our event. We will surely make good use of these lessons for our future activities.
