External Event: Developing your Fundraising Strategy (Full Day)

Developing your Fundraising Strategy (Full Day) – Tuesday 10th August 2021 9:45am – 4:30pm

A comprehensive and effective fundraising strategy is at the core of sustainability for any charity. Taking a strategic approach to fundraising will help ensure that your charity has a mixed income approach which focuses energy and resources to those fundraising areas that will bring maximum return, both in the short-term and long-term. It will also help you to ensure that your fundraising efforts support your charity to fulfill its mission, vision and objectives rather than detract from the valuable work that you do.

This course looks at how to develop your Fundraising Strategy. It will provide a structured road map and relevant tools to enable you to link together organisational objectives and the areas you need to fundraise against, with potential fundraising sources. It will also cover developing an action plan to put the strategy into practice including targets, activities timescales, performance indicators and resource requirements.

External Event: Developing your Case for Support (Full Day)

Developing your Case for Support (Full Day) – Wednesday 11th August 2021 9:45am – 4:30pm

The importance to your organisation of a clear, concise and compelling Case for Support is vital to your success in securing donors and supporters. Simply put, telling a compelling story effectively, at the right time and to the right audience will have a huge impact on your ability to engage supporters and raise funds for your charity.

The course will empower participants to develop an inspiring case for support that creates a uniform message about why they are important as a charity, how they make a difference and what people can do to support or get involved. Within this interactive course delegates prepare and deliver presentations to the rest of the group, help each other to deliver their organisation’s best selling points and leave with their Case for Support structure in place, ready to complete when they return to their organisations.
