The journey back from the Covid-19 crisis is proving not to be as smooth as we had all hoped, which means it is time to reflect and rebuild the fundraising strategy in your organisations to make it work in the world we now find ourselves in.


This course is for anyone who leads a fundraising team which has been affected by the crisis, who have been fundraising in crisis mode and haven’t yet had chance to take stock of their new situation and plan for the future in a sustainable way.


We’re here to help you identify new ways of working, to rebuild and implement resilient fundraising that can support your organisation through the inevitable challenges we still have to face.


Who is it for?

CEOs, Fundraising Leaders and anyone looking to implement change in their organisation’s fundraising strategy.


You will learn:

  • How to evaluate and reflect upon your response so far
  • Projections for the post-Covid fundraising landscape, and the problems and opportunities this allows
  • How to identify the new ways of working to build a robust fundraising plan
  • How to prepare and plan for the setbacks we may still face
  • To create a roadmap for developing a strategy for recovery
