Create Your Fundraising Action Plan


Developing a fundraising action plan for your small charity

In this half day participatory workshop, you will join a group of peers from the small charity sector to create a fundraising action plan for your small charity.  You will be guided by the trainer, Vic Hancock Fell, to consider whether your organisation has the right foundations in place to be successful with fundraising and to map out a 12 month action plan unique to your organisation.

Strong strategic and operational foundations are a regularly overlooked but critical part of being able to fundraise successfully and efficiently.  A clear vision and strategy, an engaged Board of Trustees with fundraising expertise represented, budgeting to support fundraising, impact data and systems and processes are all fundamental to fundraising success.

This course will be run online using Zoom.

What will I learn?

You will learn the role that strong strategic and operational foundations and systems play in successful fundraising.  You will be guided through a review of your charity’s foundations by a facilitator who has been where you are, having lived and breathed small charity life for the last 15 years. 

You will create a 12 month fundraising action plan and be signposted to brilliant free and low cost support so you can leave the workshop confident in what to do next, and where to go for help.
