Pitching Your Ideas in South Africa: A Brief Workshop in Financing Your Dream

Co-sponsors: Woodcock Foundation and City Year

In two successive years, Woodcock gathered other funders and members of the philanthropic community to meet with eight South Africans who participated in the Woodcock-funded City Year Clinton Democracy Fellowship. The fellowship helped to build a citizen service movement in South Africa, and each fellow prepared a three-minute proposal for a service idea and then worked one-on-one with an attending funder to strengthen the presentation.
