Fundraising Seminar: Grants
Fundraising from trusts and foundations, making your approach stand out. Run by Susan Beck
For many charities, support from trusts and foundations has become an incredibly important source of voluntary income, yet competition for these funds is high and growing. This workshop will help delegates to learn tips to make their charity stand out in their approaches to trusts, including using strategies to build relationships with potential funders, developing high impact and persuasive applications and providing outstanding stewardship to encourage long term relationships with donors. Participants attending the course will learn tips, ideas and tried and tested strategies to improve their trust and foundation fundraising. This workshop will be helpful to those embarking on a new trust programme and seeking to follow best practice, or those with an established programme who are looking to take their trust fundraising to the next level.
