Building a Fundraising Programme: A Nordic Example

Teppo Heiskanen, Director for Advancement and Corporate Engagement for Finland’s Aalto University, shares his story of building an advancement programme and culture of philanthropy with GG+A’s President Suzanne Hilser-Wiles. Aalto is a unique model of a merger of three top-tier universities and has learned to optimize government matching campaigns. When asked about his approach to fundraising, Teppo said, “People give to ideas, not fundraisers. We are offering people an opportunity to be a part of solutions.”  Hear Teppo and Suzanne’s conversation here:
