#BeATrustee – New one-day intensive Trustee Leadership Training for Arts Fundraisers

Manchester – 28 February, 2018

Bristol – 29 March, 2018

As arts and cultural organisations face an ever more competitive environment for fundraising, we urgently need you to help develop the fundraising and philanthropy knowledge and capability of our Boards.

If you are an arts fundraiser or a cultural practitioner that raises funds as part of your role, sign up with us to #BeATrustee and help us build the confidence of Boards to help raise new funds.

Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy’s new one-day intensive training for arts and cultural fundraisers covers the key responsibilities of Trustees giving you the knowledge and confidence needed to join a Board. As part of the course, we offer a unique Trustee matching service introducing participants to arts organisations looking for new Trustees, as well as a chance to join our alumni network for ongoing opportunities. Participants can receive accreditation from the Institute of Leadership Management and access further free e-learning content to keep skills and knowledge fresh.

This course, with its specific focus to encourage more fundraising talent onto Boards, has been adapted from the current award-winning national Trustee Leadership Programme, devised by Cause4 and run in partnership with Close Brothers Asset Management and the Clothworkers’ Foundation.  It will be led by Michelle Wright, Programme Director of Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy and CEO of Cause4.
