Who should attend this course?

This half-day course is designed for those working in the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector in Kent (excluding Medway).

Course content

This course is for those who are relatively new to fundraising and people who may have had fundraising 'added on' to their existing role. The course will examine what fundraising is really about (probably not what you think!) and how to apply the key principles of fundraising to maximise success. It will also look at the planning required to fundraise and help your organisation to assess whether it is ready to fundraise. The course will also provide an overview of all the main income streams available to charities: stautory, trusts, corporates, individuals and trading.
