Proposal Writing Training and Partnership Building for Pride Alumni: Reunion and Beyond The Reunion
What will it be if the first two Pride cohorts from Bogor reunited? The answer is simply GREAT, and LOTS OF FUN! That was what happened when we held the first ever proposal writing training for Bogor 1 and Bogor 2 alumni on June 8-9, 2009 in Faculty of Forestry, IPB. The training was integrated with Pride’s Module 3 Unit 2 session on Partnership Building given to Bogor 3. So when all of them met, it was even GREATER and MORE FUN! Four alumni from Bogor 1: Agus Wiyono, Cut Intan, Zakiah, and Panji Anom, and two soon-to-be-alumni from Bogor 2: Edy Sutrisno and Sri Ulie Rakhmawati, joined the training for 2 full days, and evening! Due to some considerations, we limit the participants to only 6-8 alumni, and there were 8 participants registered, but they both could not come due to sudden important occasion.
All 6 alumni and future alumni arrived on June 7, and had our first dinner. There we talked about the agenda for the next 2 days, the objective of the training, and the flow of the training. Other than the proposal writing training, we would also have discussion on establishing and strengthening the alumni network in Indonesia in particular. Other than the introduction and ice breaking – where the ice is not at all there – the topic went all the way back to when they first start their campaign and all the fights and challenges and fun during their times with Pride. It was a reunion indeed! The Proposal Writing and Partnership Building Training
The first day of the training, twas opened with a very hot ice breaking: family picture! Each group had to name their family and pose like in a family picture while saying their names. The ice - which was not really there - instantly melted.
On the first day, alumni learned the materials on fundraising essentials, donor identification, proposal writing, and cultivating donors. It was interesting to see that the alumni actually have had the experience but did not realize that they actually have the experiences in dealing with donors and partners but not knowing the steps or the knowledge behind it. So far they learn based on their experiences. They found that the materials given made them understand better that fundraising needs systematic steps, it’s a team effort, and what attitude needed to become a successful fundraiser, including the important need to keep up their spirit even if they are not successful with a donor.
We also had a role play where the CMs and alumni were divided into two groups, one played as NGO and one played as donor. They then meet in couples and exercised as if one is having their first meeting with a donor who has really short time and have so many deadlines. They then analyze who was successful and who was not and what were the points of success and failures.
Besides following the course, they also shared their experiences in fundraising, their successes and failures, and how their effort might be replicated or revised in the future. Agus was the star alumni that day, highlighting his success on engaging IUCN small grant for his Pride campaign follow up last year and a promote a national drinking water company’s environmental engagement by supporting Kaliandra’s activities.
The second day was opened with a wonderful energizer from Agus’ “do this do that” game, sort of a Simon says game, who let us punching the air with one feet at the end of the game! And then another short alumni sharing was held. Each of the alumnus shared their experiences with Pride and the values they receive from it. A quote from Itjut started the day with spirit: “Pride is a work of heart”.
Day 2 was then continued with developing a stock proposal into a real proposal. The material was really helpful but unfortunately the alumni said that there was not enough time to do the exercise and there was no sample of a stock proposal and the sample of a real proposal developed from it. It would be more helpful for them if Rare provide a sample of it. It was then continued with donor stewardship, which also provided very helpful technical things that the alumni can do to keep their donor engaged. Not really so hard, but often forgotten, such as quarterly report or just news about the development of the program.
At noon, Sari Surjadi, a main fundraiser from Sustainable Fishery Practice (formerly in Conservation International), shared her fundraising experience from a donor’s point of view. Sari was very good in delivering her presentation and sharing her experience that none of us remembered to take pictures! She also made us realize the forgotten fact that DONOR IS HUMAN TOO! So doing buy in and engaging your donor is about making a relationship with a normal human being as well, and whenever thing go wrong, you can always communicate with your donor about the program and the budget. “Donors are not scary, and you don’t have to avoid them whenever you accidentally meet them somewhere and thought that they will always ask you about your program every time”, Sari underlined her statement. Also, what’s so human about donors is that they need time to review all the proposals they receive, and we just need to be patient if the donor explained that the proposal is being analyzed.
After seeing things from a donor’s point of view, our Partnership Manager Nita Ryarti also shared her years of experience with CUSO, dealing with donors and maintaining partnership. Nita’s session concluded the session in the university.
On the last half day of the training, we had session on RarePlanet at Rare’s office. There, we had session starting from the very basic steps like log in, the features on MyRarePlanetHome, campaign page and the features in it (blog, resources, edit tab, etc.). Rare – represented by act. Alumni Coordinator Galuh Sekar Arum – explained the main purpose why RarePlanet was made: to become one of the most effective tools in linking campaign, campaign manager, and Lead Agency Partners directly with other conservationists around the world, as well as donors, media, and other interested parties. RarePlanet is simply one of the tools that the alumni can use for partnership building, a theme that they intensively learned for the last two days. Although it was already getting late and everyone is tired, they all were very enthusiastic about RarePlanet. The two main concrete outcomes from the session are two blogs each from Itjut and Agus! Please have a look at Itjut’s thank you note for Rare at http://rareplanet.org/en/campaign/seulawah-ecosystem-area/blog and Agus’ premiere blog at http://rareplanet.org/en/campaign-blog/pride-jilid-2.
Follow up action required by the alumni from Rare is that to provide them with a RarePlanet manual.
