Description

Introduction to Fundraising

Are you new to the sector or thinking of changing careers and looking to improve and develop your understanding and knowledge of fundraising? We are fortunate to have one of the IoF’s trainers, Gill Jolly (who is also Director of Achieve Consultants Ltd) in the East Region to deliver IoF training. The Introduction to Fundraising course offers you a practical introduction to the profession covering basic principles and best practice. You will learn how to ensure your fundraising activities are legal and ethical, how to better contribute to your organisation’s fundraising effectiveness and understand why your relationship(s) with your donors and supporters is critical to your success.

Who is this course for?

This one-day course is for individuals who may have less than six months fundraising experience and want to improve their current understanding. It’s designed for individuals new to a paid role involving fundraising but equally relevant for volunteers, trustees and those who need to expand their knowledge of fundraising. It’s also suitable for people who are not yet working in the sector or considering a career change into fundraising.

This new and improved Introduction to Fundraising course has an increased emphasis on practical application and is accredited by the IoF.

What are the benefits to you and your organisation?

By attending this course you will gain increased confidence through your improved knowledge and understanding of fundraising. This will help you develop your fundraising practice. You will have a better understanding of the fundamentals of why and how donors and supporters give, and insight into how you can measure the success of your activities. Crucially you will also find out more about the legal requirements and standards which apply to fundraising and the role and importance of the Code of Fundraising Practice and role of the Fundraising Regulator.

What will you learn?

1) The role of fundraising in your organisation and the wider non-profit environment

2) How to compare different sources of funding for your organisation

3) How to ensure your fundraising is legal and ethical

4) How to analyse the impact of the fundraising environment on your fundraising practice

5) Understanding of the fundraising planning process and your role within it

6) How to create appropriate supporter communications, designed to develop relationships

Lunch and refreshments are provided as part of the course fee.
