A strong fundraising strategy helps you to decide how to fund and sustain your work, prioritise different fundraising opportunities and make best use of your limited resources. Developing an effective strategy requires a methodical approach, a sound knowledge of how fundraising works and an honest evaluation of organisation’s position.
This workshop will give you a comprehensive process for developing your own fundraising strategy, as well as a number of powerful decision-making techniques for wider use. We’ll start by explaining some vital foundation exercises that you should do before developing your fundraising strategy to articulate why fundraising is necessary, review your current performance and identify how to reach key fundraising audiences.
We’ll then show you how to evaluate and prioritise different fundraising activities, and set up your organisation for fundraising success. The workshop includes several group exercises and we’ll be sharing plenty of real-life charity examples along the way.
