Fundraising Strategy & Strategic Decision-making
A strong fundraising strategy is essential for deciding how you’re going to fund and sustain your work, and make the best use of your limited resources, but can often be an afterthought.
Aimed at trustees and senior staff in small charities, this workshop will talk you through the key steps involved, based on our own unique fundraising strategy process developed through years of working with small charities.
This workshop will cover:
- What you need to do before developing a fundraising strategy.
- Developing fundraising strategy – the challenges and our unique process.
- Laying the foundations for your fundraising strategy.
- Audience mapping, activity planning and setting up to succeed.
The workshop also includes several group exercises and we will be sharing plenty of real-life charity examples along the way.
A previous attendee described the workshop as:
“Your very enjoyable, clear and practical workshop has given me a structure in which to think about things and to implement a fundraising strategy. I feel that I've come away with a lot of useful information and - even better - a good set of tools.”
