Fundraising for Independent Charities and Youth Projects


Who's it for?

  • Directors and managers of charities - youth work related & others
  • Fundraisers supporting charities
  • Others wanting to raise funds for projects

Course outline

How do you fund the work you are doing? That's the perennial question facing many charities and small organisations. Often the task falls to the staff you already have, rather than a specialist fundraising team. But how do you go about it, especially when there are so many organisations competing for a limited pool of funds? This day is for any charity or small organisation, whether you are focused on youth ministry or not - to get the knowledge and skills you need to make fundraising work for you.

Over the course of the day your main tutor, Chris Curtis, will share his thirty years experience of fundraising for Youthscape. It's a practical session that will look at successful application and pinpoint what worked, as well as providing you with a list of possible Trusts and Foundations to approach. You'll learn some vital tips and tricks to ensure your applications don't get dismissed, and which allow you to get to know the people making the grants and earn their trust.
