Improving The Odds – Demonstrating Impact In Fundraising

Improving The Odds – Demonstrating Impact In Fundraising

The course will be across two 2 hour and 30 minute sessions a week apart, from 10.00am - 12.30pm.

The training is appropriate for fundraisers with intermediate experience, or whom have limited experience with smaller funding applications, wishing to build confidence in writing more ambitious proposals.

The aim is to step up from numerous small funding applications to fewer higher value applications from Statutory funders or larger Trusts and Foundations. We will look at how to maximise the chance of success in a competitive environment.

The course will include:

· Identifying the right funders

· Sources of information

· Teamwork and preparing for a more complex bid

· Priorities and alignment

· Case for support

· Impactful bid writing
