Dates from March-May 2013

What was the Project aim(s)?

To increase the Museum’s capacity and ability in raising income through fundraising. This will be achieved with the assistance of external consultants, Hopkins Van Mil.         

What was the impact of the project?

Five members of staff were involved in the project (though all members of staff were involved in certain aspects, such as the development of a vision). All five have an increased awareness of what is involved in fundraising and the need to be proactive rather than reactive. As a result of the project, a fundraising plan is being developed to ensure more efficient use of time and resources.

One result of the project is that REME Museum staff are more aware of funding resources and how to adapt applications to increase chances of success. As such, we are able to identify and vary sources of funding which strengthen our position in regard to alternative support coming into the Museum.

A further result is that fundraising is seen much more as a group effort involving different members of staff with different expertise rather then being the responsibility of one person.

The project has allowed for two members of staff to develop potential funding plans for new projects at the Lyneham site. This will have a direct benefit for users who will be able to make use of the resources.
