Event description

Description

Following a sell-out programme of courses this summer, we are delighted to offer even more training opportunities to all across the archive sector. 

When it comes to fundraising, why do your Friends Group and your volunteers matter?

'The Friends of Lancashire Archives has supported us for 30 years, with fundraising for document purchase, cataloguing, indexing and outreach projects amounting to around£200,000. In today's economic climate they are our lifeline.' (Jacquie Crosby, Lancashire Archives)

This course will show you how to unlock more funding through your existing resources. A friends group and volunteers can dedicate the time that you lack to generating a regular income. They can devote their activity to specific fundraising tasks and also act as ambassadors for your archive.

Learn how to build a mutually beneficial relationship with Friends and develop a shared fundraising goal. Understand how to run fundraising events with your Friends and volunteers; and how to tap into their own networks for advice and resources. 

This course is aimed at those working within archive organisations on how to best work with and manage relationships with friends groups and volunteers. Please note this course is not open to Friends Group members or volunteers themselves. 

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day, including lunch.

Once you have registered for this event, we will be in contact with you to get a better understanding of how to make sure the training meets your needs.

This event is very popular and places are limited so please only book if you will be able to attend. If you can no longer attend the event then please do email fundraisingforarchives@nationalarchives.gsi.gov.uk
