NGO Catalyst was created to elevate the field of resource development in Israel by advancing and assisting the professional fundraisers themselves.
After Aliyah, I sought to make a career change to professional fundraising, development, and grant writing. Rachel Canar’s course and Minuf made my vision become a reality. Her expertise and hands on teaching approach provided me with the right skills to enter this exciting and in-demand profession. Through fundraising, I’m building bridges between the United States and Israel to benefit people served by non-profit organizations and advance Israel.

The course is invaluable. After just one session, I learnt so much that I went back to the office and revolutionized our systems for fundraising from private donors. Rachel is an excellent teacher and I have benefited so much from her experience and her sound and incisive advice.

Excellent use of precious time! Regardless if you are new or old to the field, you will learn and be challenged.

Rachel is extremely knowledgeable in her field and her course is packed with essential information on fundraising for non-profits as well as on organizational development and branding. The information delivered is both clear and comprehensive. The course is also especially useful. Having both studied non-profit management as well as worked in the NGO sector, I would highly recommend the course to both people who are new to the field, as well as to those who have previous experience but have not yet worked in Israel.

Rachel Canar’s Fundraising Course GIVES those who are new to the world of Fundraising, as well as those who are involved with non-profits, a WEALTH of knowledge that will enable CURRENT and PROSPECTIVE fundraisers to secure funds for their organisation in a professional and effective manner. Rachel is a GIFTed communicator, and shares her wisdom through CULTIVATING a warm and supportive learning atmosphere. It was a privilege to attend Rachel’s course and I would highly recommend it.
