The EFA team visited FENAER in Malaga (Spain) on the 4th of November for the second meeting of EFA Capacity Building project. The meeting was attended by 16 representatives of 9 FENAER member organizations active in Spain in the field of respiratory diseases.
After a round of presentations, EFA Corporate Relations and Fundraising Manager, discussed FENAER’s core structural aspects and underpinning issues were highlighted:

  • defining a clear mission, vision and objectives
  • identifying the organizations’ purpose and methods
  • detailing membership rights and obligations

This was followed by a session on fundraising opportunities, aimed at providing inputs on ways to identify and maintain corporate partnerships. The group also explored how to present a framework for a sustainable corporate partnership, which can serve as the main document for achieving stable funding sources.

The second part of the meeting was moderated by Diego Villalon, from Fundación MÁS QUE IDEAS who engaged the participants in an open discussion aimed at highlighting FENAER’s strengths, threats, weaknesses and opportunities. He then divided them in four small groups in order to identify benefits and barriers of collaborating with a) public health authorities, b) healthcare companies, c) healthcare professionals and d) other patient organizations or NGOs.

In the final part of the meeting EFA Project Manager Giuseppe De Carlo provided some insight on the ways to support involving volunteers in non-profit organization activities.

The last meeting within the context of the 2016 Capacity Building project will be held in Genoa on the 5th of December. This is a follow-up session with FederASMA and ALLERGIE Onlus, one of the participants in the Capacity Building project last year.
