Event description

Description

Does your organisation need help improving their applications to trusts and foundations?

Trusts and foundations continue to make over £4billion of grants annually, but writing strong and convincing applications is more important than ever. Many funders are becoming increasingly oversubscribed due to declining statutory funding, the likely loss of European funding after Brexit, and the tough financial climate forcing some funders to reduce their annual giving. Consequently, success rates are on the decline and many funders openly advertise that they fund less than 5% of the applications they receive.

This course is for fundraisers, senior staff and trustees who have some experience of fundraising from trust and foundations but who:

  • Are struggling to repeat previous success in a competitive funding climate

  • Would like to add more quality and strategy to their approach

  • Haven’t had a chance to take a step back and consider what isn’t working and how to change it

  • Would like to gain more insight into the mindset of funders

It's based on the five-stage process developed by Lime Green Consulting to help charities ensure that they have all the key components in place for trusts and foundations fundraising.

A previous attendee described the Fundraising Strategy and Decision Making workshop as:

Your very enjoyable, clear and practical workshop has given me a structure in which to think about things and to implement a fundraising strategy. I feel that I've come away with a lot of useful information and - even better - a good set of tools.
