Giving to Heritage Programme continues for another 12 months

The Heritage Alliance has announce that it has been awarded £250,000 under the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Catalyst Umbrella programme to extend Giving to Heritage for another 12 months from June 2016.

Due to the strong demand in the independent heritage sector for continuing fundraising training, there will be a series of workshops, webinars, coaching and other training events at locations across England for both inexperienced and experienced fundraisers. In addition, a series of new workshop subjects will be launched covering how to apply for social investment funds and how to set up a community shares project. Further details will be announced shortly.

In its initial two years, Giving to Heritage training has been received by over 1,100 heritage staff and volunteers, representing nearly 600 different organisations. Confidence levels in heritage fundraising and capacity building have increased substantially and there have been several examples of real successes including major sums raised from new approaches donors.
