The International School of Fundraising is the Leadership Institute's premiere executive leadership program, bringing together top experts from around the world to provide four days of intensive training in every aspect of fundraising. This program is designed for conservative leaders, activists, candidates, NGO executives and professionals -- anyone currently or aspiring to raise the funds to put ideas into action.

This exclusive event is held only once each year.

Munich provides the perfect venue for the 2022 International School of Fundraising, easily accessible from the city's main airport and train station. This program gives you the opportunity to develop and enhance your skills to effectively raise funds for candidates, parties, and causes.

Every member of the expert faculty for the International School of Fundraising has years of experience leading in their respective fields of fundraising. More than 30 presentations, panel discussions, and interviews will cover the full range of topics including developing fundraising strategies, trends in fundraising, raising funds online and in the mail, corporate fundraising, capital campaigns, using video for fundraising, donor stewardship, and much more.

In addition to the wide array of fundraising techniques traditionally covered, the 2022 ISF will include a special concentration in building a digital fundraising program.

Beyond the skills you receive from this program, you will meet like-minded leaders and activists from around the world, all while situated in Germany's Heimliche Hauptstadt ("secret capital").

All participants are invited to attend a banquet dinner during the program at a special venue in Munich.

This program is delivered entirely in English.
