Essentials in Corporate Fundraising

This course will be delivered virtually via Zoom in two separate 3 hour sessions. The first of these will take place on Tuesday 5th November from 10.00am - 1.00pm and the second will take place on  Tuesday 12th November from 10.00am - 1.00pm. It is necessary to attend both sessions to complete the full training.

This course provides an introduction to developing a successful corporate fundraising programme. The learning is relevant for individuals and organisations from the arts, culture and heritage sectors that are public facing and want to raise funds from all scales of business from local companies to national brands.

  • The different ways to engage companies as part of your fundraising portfolio
  • What companies are interested in when it comes to sponsorship or corporate social responsibility (CSR)
  • The language skills required to attract and sell to businesses
  • How to identify your assets and create a vibrant proposal
