Trusts Fundraising - Getting Started (11-May-21)
This course is for people with limited trust fundraising experience - people who are likely to have been working in this area for less than 12 months, either as a staff member or as a volunteer, and for those who wish to develop skills to work with trusts and foundations.
There are around 9,000 grant-making trusts in the UK worth around £4bn to the sector. Whilst a good well-written application is important, success with trusts is not all about what you write. When you’re getting started in trust fundraising, having a full understanding of trusts and foundations is vital – why they exist, how they work, what motivates their giving, what they are looking for, the grant application process etc . Understanding this will enable you to write a request that really stands out. This course teaches you all about this, and gets you started with the professional techniques to write effective, confident proposals.
The course is being delivered via the online platform zoom. To enable you to interact with your tutor and your class you will need to have access to a microphone (or access to a landline phone) and ideally have a working video link via a camera.
