The Pontis Foundation has been bridging the NGO, business and state sectors in Slovakia for more than 20 years. Last year we decided to combine all the different support mechanisms and focus them on a complex program called the Generation 3.0, which aims to bring about bottom-up change of the education system in Slovakia. Apart from the financial, networking, lobbying and impact measurement service, which we provide for the most innovative education approaches, we also organise a 3 month pro bono acceleration program called the MentorExpres. It includes various pro bono formats for the finalists of the Generation 3.0 program.
On the 25th of October we organise already the 4th pro bono day-long workshop for the participants of the MentorExpres. The training will offer to the NGOs information on corporate and individual fundraising techniques – how to identify a donor, achieve an agreement, and sustain a long-lasting partnership.
