Managing ‘up’ – donors and other
funders
• Try to be in control – set your programme’s aims and
objectives, based on stated community need and take this
to funders and donors
• Have a strategic plan and a set of priorities and take this to
donors – don't wait for them to set priorities
• Take on projects that suit these needs – try to say “no” to,
or renegotiate funding that is not in line with this
• Take time to understand what the donor or funder needs:
– Develop the relationship
– Understand their needs and pressures

‘rules of engagement’.
