The Basics of Fundraising

The basic principles of fundraising. The goal of this introductory session (aimed at those new to fundraising) is to look at the following:

  • Understanding the basic principles of fundraising, approaches to funders and the key considerations relating fundraising.
  • Understanding how to develop a very basic project fundraising plan. Delegates are asked to keep this plan with them to make annotations as they move through the masterclasses.

This session (delivered by the MDO) will be followed by a series of more advanced specialist ‘master classes’ to improve on the basic knowledge of this first session. More experienced fundraisers are recommended to join the day at 13:30.

By the end of the day, delegates will:

  • Feel increased confidence in how to approach funders and how to write successful and realistic funding bids.
  • Have access to sign-posted resources relating to grant awarders and funders, as well as associated information.
