Friends & Volunteers: Introduction to Fundraising Support
Mon 5 December 2016, 10:30 – 15:00 GMT
Are you a Volunteer or Friends Group member who fundraises for your archive service? Or would you like to start thinking about it?
Fundraising for Archives invites Friends and Volunteers from across the archive sector to a workshop on fundraising. This is an opportunity for Friends and volunteers from different services to come together, share their experiences and hear fundraising best practice from peers successful at generating income for their archive.
This is very much an action-packed day with lunch and refreshments provided. All are welcome, and a representative from the archive service itself is very welcome to come alongside their Friends and/or volunteers.
The session will include:
The Friends and archivist of Dorset History Centre sharing their success of fundraising in collaboration
The Friends and head of special collections of Senate House Library discussing how Friends can perform the vital role of advocate for their service
The fundraising volunteer and archivist of Marx Memorial Library presenting the difference fundraising volunteers make to an archive organisation
The senior archivist of Bristol Record Office addressing the advantages of a Friends group supporting more than one local heritage service
A talk and Q&A with Jeff James, Chief Executive and Keeper of The National Archives
An introduction to Charity Commission guidance for governance by Stone King
A fundraising surgery to provide 1:1 advice to Friends and volunteers
An opportunity to speak with the Fundraising for Archives team about what fundraising support and training is available to Friends and volunteers
And an exclusive chance to see some of The National Archives' most fascinating records up close!
We look forward to seeing you there!
