This indispensable one day course will provide you with the logistical know-how to ensure that your next events run as smoothly as possible, giving you a thorough understanding of what is needed to design and deliver your best fundraising event to date.

Standard Content

Whether you want to raise awareness for your cause, meet new prospects, cultivate relationships with donors, thank loyal supporters or simply raise money for your cause, you need to understand the principles and practices of planning, managing and staging successful and memorable events.

During this course you will cover the key principles of SMART objectives, market evaluation, risk assessment, budgeting, project management, event logistics, delegation and prioritisation, contingency planning, team management, negotiation, and project evaluation. The tutor’s experience in spotting areas for unexpected risks, financial losses and unrealistic costing or pricing, are an invaluable part of the training.

This was a great course that teaches techniques about everything involved in event fundraising from the brainstorming stage through to delivering an event and evaluating it afterwards.
