Diversity in Fund Development

We all have attitudes which colour our response to a request for support. Although many of these are personal we are also subject to cultural patterns that are worth noting on the larger scale. Inadvertently giving offense can undermine and bring to nought a mountain of hard-won good will, and on the other hand there may be issues on which some cultures are more likely to be generous than we expect of the general population.
Some of our webinars will be exploring these and related issues
