Planning to Progress (Glasgow – 2 x evening sessions)

September 24, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This course will provide you with an understanding of the significance and usefulness of a fundraising strategy and will provide you with the tools to construct an effective plan for your organisation.

The course is taking place over two evening sessions, Thursday 24th September and Thursday 8th October (6pm – 8:30pm).  By purchasing a ticket you are agreeing to attend both sessions and to complete homework in-between!

You will learn the principles of a fundraising model for heritage organisations and will begin to construct a strategy for your own organisation.

The training covers:

  • researching and identifying sustainable sources of private income
  • developing project profiles
  • pitching your project
  • maintaining relationships with donors, funders or sponsors
  • reviewing and evaluating your strategy
The session will include the opportunity to share knowledge, experiences and learning with participants from other heritage organisations through facilitated networking sessions.
