Developing Your Fundraising Strategy (Full Day)

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.

Developing Your Case For Support (Full Day)

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.

Charity Leaders’ Role in Strategy Development (Half Day PM)

It is charity’s leaders, both Trustees and staff, that decide and deliver the direction of work for the charity. Charity Leaders, using the expertise and knowledge they bring to the charity and the information given to them from those who directly work with their beneficiaries, are responsible for the forward direction of the charity. As such they play a key role in ensuring that the strategic direction of the charity is focused on their beneficiary needs.
