Action Planning – Managing a Fundraising Function

Action Planning – Managing a Fundraising Function

Are you a senior member of staff with no fundraising experience who has been given responsibility for fundraising? This workshop could be for you.

Do you oversee fundraising and need to assess its effectiveness but don’t know how to?

Whether you are establishing a new fundraising function, or working to increase your revenue and/or capital funding from a range of sources, 'Managing the Fundraising Function for non-fundraisers!' will give you the tools to ensure that your organisation can fund its work, even in challenging times. The workshop will help you to understand fundraising and develop a strong and broadly based fundraising function to drive income for your charity.

This workshop is designed principally for chief executives, finance directors and recently appointed fundraising directors who do not have a specialist background in fundraising.

The workshop will give you an understanding of:

– how to develop a fundraising strategy which meshes with your organisational strategy

– how to ensure you have the right people, doing the right things

– what to expect of those in fundraising roles and the key questions to ask in order to assess performance

– the principles involved in fundraising from all sources including statutory sources, trusts & foundations, companies, community organisations, trading & enterprise and individuals (major donor and legacies)

– how to determine the level of investment you should commit to different types of fundraising, and what return you should expect

– your role in managing relationships with key funders

– how to motivate your trustees to play an appropriate role in fundraising

The workshop will be led by David Saint, Chairman of Action Planning, who has helped many of Britain's leading charities to generate more income from a wider range of sources and is designed principally for those chief executives and recently appointed fundraising directors who do not have a specialist background in fundraising.
