Essential Fundraising Skills Training Courses

In 2015/16 we ran a number of training courses which taught the essential skills fundraisers in the cultural sector need to work effectively.

We plan to hold more training again beginning in early Autumn 2017.

Sign up to our mailing list to hear about new courses once they are announced.

Comments from Participants

“I have to say the quality of the training really is outstanding. I’ve done 4 out of 5 of the Essential Fundraising Skills and am very impressed. The trainers are not only experienced experts in their respective fields but also excellent communicators.”
Ruth Northey, Soft Touch Arts, Leicester

Writing Strong Funding Applications

“With near to none fundraising experience I found this session a brilliant introduction to the approach to fundraising – from identifying the ‘bases’ of the funders to breaking down a plan of attack for writing. I now feel I have all the tools to have a go. Role plays were extremely useful yet tricky! Lots of learning and head buzzing!”
Georgina Bolton, Assistant Producer, Situations

Networking and Making the Ask

“France was fantastic at encouraging and focusing on individual needs.”
Emma Shiel, Development Manager, MIF

Planning a Fundraising Strategy

“I found the simple explanations, honest analysis and relevant examples most interesting and helpful. The trainer was open to discussion, answering individual queries and addressing specific examples. It felt collaborative, I wanted more! Could have sat and talked with this trainer and group for a couple of days…”
