Small Charity -  Big Fundraisers! - Jenny Wildblood, Funding Lead, Voscur

You may feel that your small charity can’t compete in fundraising skill and capacity with larger organisations, but in fact smaller charities have many unique offers for funders and supporters. This workshop is for smaller voluntary organisations that want to be clearer about how to communicate their unique value more effectively and use their smaller resources to maximum fundraising effect.

This session explores the skills of successful fundraisers and the skills of great leaders and will challenge us to take a leadership approach to effect game-changing fundraising for our charities. The session is based on the type of systems thinking deployed within the South West Development Director’s Forum Leadership Development Programme.
