Community Fundraising – 30th November

Community fundraising has long been a staple for charities of all sizes.  It’s a great way to raise income, awareness of your cause, attract new supporters and involve the wider community, but it can also be resource intensive – as a result the return on investment can be low, when compared to other types of fundraising but the other benefits to your organisation may still make it worthwhile e.g. supporter and volunteer recruitment, awareness raising and keeping a profile locally.

This course will empower participants to mobilise the community around their organisation; to raise funds and awareness; to educate about their cause and campaigns and to recruit new supporters.
Target Audience
This course will benefit the community or general fundraiser in your charity/community group.
Learning Outcomes
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • See where community fundraising fits into your overall fundraising strategy

  • Identify sources of income from the community

  • Build a successful community year plan

  • Develop tools to support your community fundraising activities e.g. fundraising packs.

    Details: Training takes place at Riverside on 30th November from 9.30am-4pm
