Developing a Fundraising Strategy
This popular one-day course will walk you through our tried-and-tested framework for developing a fundraising strategy and making difficult strategic decisions. We'll show you how to analyse your current fundraising performance and funding needs, explore your strategic position using our 'Enhanced SWOT analysis' and identify and prioritise different fundraising audiences. We'll then explain how to scope out a range of fundraising activities and accurately identify how best to resource them and forecast the financial return. We'll also cover how to set up your organisation for long-term success, looking at marketing assets, performance management and organisational culture.
Fundraising from Trusts & Foundations
This new one-day course is for people who already have some experience of trusts fundraising but would like to add more quality and strategy to their approach, ensure they can maintain success in a competitive funding climate, and gain more insight into the mindset of funders. We'll be guiding you through our five key components of trusts fundraising - including prospect research, developing a compelling case for support and long-term relationship-building - with plenty of interactive exercises along the way.
