Fundraising: Make it Happen (Glasgow)

September 12, 2017 @ 9:15 am - 5:00 pm

‘Make it Happen’ is an introduction to fundraising from private sources for heritage groups and organisations.

The course is best suited to registered charities and/or constituted community groups who are looking to kick-start their fundraising and diversify their income streams.  The day involves sharing of ideas and experiences and also provides an excellent networking opportunity.

This one-day course will raise awareness of the various funding sources available to heritage organisations and projects. It will help you target the private sources of funding best suited to the work you want to do and outline the best practice methods of approach.

The training covers:
– Individual Giving
– Developing your Case for Support
– The Seven Steps of fundraising

– How to Thank your supporters
– A look at resources, tools and techniques

Together we will spend some time sharing experiences and concerns and discuss possible solutions within facilitated networking sessions.
