Developing a Fundraising Strategy
Our 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
We've designed this one-day course 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 funders. We'll also help you to understand things from the funder's perspective, including what they're looking for, what puts them off, and why they occasionally say frustrating things!
Crowdfunding For Charities and Social Enterprises
Crowdfunding is a great way to raise vital funds, engage your supporter base and attract new donors. But with fewer than 50% of campaigns succeeding, it’s more difficult than it looks. Our new one-day course will walk you through every stage of a successful campaign, including choosing your platform, designing your ask, launching with a splash, and keeping up momentum when donations inevitably slow down. Thanks to a combination of insightful presentations, interactive exercises and real-life campaign examples, you'll leave with a clear plan for running a successful campaign, and a much stronger understanding of crowdfunding in general.
