In Focus: Membership & Friends and Annual Giving
August 31, 2016 @ 9:45 am - 5:00 pm
A fantastic opportunity to experience two of the Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage ‘In Focus’ sessions in one day!
This training session includes both the Membership & Friends session and the Annual Giving session with a networking lunch in-between.
Membership & Friends:
This interactive session will explore what organisations can gain from Membership and Supporter/Friends programmes. Whether you have a scheme in place already, are thinking of starting a scheme or wish to revive a faltering programme there will be practical tips and exercises to support you to grow this key potential source of unrestricted funds to support your work.
We will also look at potential pitfalls and problems and get practical advice from an organisation that has successfully grown and developed their membership so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
Participants are encouraged to bring their plans, ideas and questions to share.
The session is led by Fundraising Consultant and Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage Trainer Pam Judson and includes a case study presentation by Dianne Laing of Archaeology Scotland.
This participatory session will explore the many options available for annual giving and will allow you to think about the research and planning needed to identify the best sources for your heritage organisation.
The training will provide an overview of:
- online/mobile giving
- direct debit supporters
- regular cash givers
- one-off cash donors
- trusts & foundations
The session is led by Peter Thierfeldt, Fundraising Consultant and Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage trainer.
