Event Details

Achieving Fundraising Success Through Partnerships


The landscape for fundraising remains full of opportunities, but they are increasingly fragmented, specialised and time-consuming.  It is impossible for an organisation to pursue a wide range of opportunities alone to maximise its fundraising potential – the most successful organisations work in partnership.

This course explores the power of building partnerships to support arts and cultural organisations to stand out in fundraising.

Creating competitive advantage is how all brands excel, and solid partnerships support organisations to build a strong position quickly and for the long-term, winning over the hearts and minds of funders and donors alike.

By the end of the day, you will have:

  • Enhanced skills in creating competitive advantage for your organisations to enhance fundraising
  • Increased confidence in developing strong external partnerships
  • The know-how to craft a compelling and distinctive fundraising case for support
  • Real case studies and examples to help you implement strategies within your organisation

Who’s it for?

This course is designed for managers and leaders of arts and cultural organisations, whether fundraising specialists or with broader management roles, and for experienced freelancers.

The one-day course is from 11am - 5.30pm. Lunch is included.
