Digital Tools for Fundraising

Digital Tools for Fundraising

This course will be delivered virtually via Zoom in two separate 3 hour sessions. The first of these will take place on Thursday 13 October at 10.00am and the second will take place on Thursday 20 October at 10.00am. It is necessary to attend both sessions to complete the full training.


This course supports participants to take the first steps in raising money through digital channels. In the wake of work-from-home (for fundraisers and donors) due to Covid-19 and the growing pressure of the cost-of-living crisis, it is crucial that fundraisers have the necessary skills to make the most of the opportunities that digital fundraising has to offer.
