The University of Kent’s Centre for Philanthropy is aiming to help small charities, non-profit organisations, and community and volunteer-led groups fundraise more effectively with a new, free, online course.
The course, ‘How to Fundraise: A Guide to Fundraising for Non-Fundraisers’, is a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). It goes live online on 8 June 2020 and people can sign up now.
Over the course of three weeks, it will help individuals design sustainable fundraising strategies using insights from evidence-based research on the motivations behind donor giving, and develop skills in fundraising management along with an understanding of the resource and finance required to support the long-term fundraising goals of their organisation.
Topics covered include:

Dr Lesley Alborough, Research Fellow at the Centre for Philanthropy, said:

“As many charities, community groups and non-profit organisations look to recover from the additional financial challenges presented during the Covid-19 pandemic, this MOOC will provide essential advice and guidance to help them get back on track with fundraising. The best fundraising strategies emotionally and socially resonate with donors, volunteers and staff alike and we aim to help more organisations identify how to engage with their individual supporters.”
