Aj to je názov jedného z workshopov Slovensko-českej konferencie o fundraisingu, na ktorom Dobrý anjel predstaví kampane, ktoré neboli zamerané na získavanie finančných darov, ale v konečnom dôsledku sa prejavili ako najúspešnejšie práve v tejto oblasti.

To je len jeden z množstva pozitívnych ohlasov na CEE Fundraising Conference, ktorá sa konala 12.-14. októbra 2016 pod názvom Grow Fast: Invest In Fundraising (Synergies) v Bratislave.
