Giving to Heritage - launching in May 2014

The Heritage Alliance’s (HA) Giving to Heritage programme, which aims to boost fundraising skills across England, is to launch in May.  Supported by £500,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the programme will offer face-to-face workshops in every English region, surgeries, mentoring, webinars and action learning sets, as well as online resources.  It combines training provision from the Institute of Fundraising with the HA’s access to the heritage community to deliver thousands of learning opportunities.  The training comes at very low cost, with a maximum of £20 for workshops and surgeries, and everything else free.

A new website will be launched to provide information.  More information is also available now.

Meanwhile the Alliance’s Heritage Funding Directory, a user-friendly listing targeted specifically at heritage groups, will operate in parallel with the Giving to Heritage campaign.
