This workshop will provide you with a process to assess your own organisation and come up with a funding strategy that should be stable, suitable and sufficient for your needs. The workshop will cover the following funding streams: Gifts, Grants, Contracts and the Open Market.
 
As a fundraiser, even though you might be getting good results in the short term, without a strategy, you will likely burn yourself, and your donors out, over the long-term.
 
A funding strategy sets out what a nonprofit's funding needs are likely to be, over a future period and outlines how the organisation plans to raise money and fulfil its cause.
 
What structure should your organisation's fundraising plan or strategy take? What resources are needed to develop a funding strategy? This workshop will show you how to build a systematic strategy that will provide a sustainable future.
 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Be able to understand your own income mix and how you can play to your strengths when seeking new sources of funding
  • Be able to identify the key components and tools required to build a financially sustainable organisation

What Previous Attendees of This Workshop Have Said:

"I really enjoyed the introduction to the tools for seeing what fundraising avenues work for your organisation, such as the matrix map.  Also The Wheel's case study was really informative. Whilst I had lots of ideas going into the session, I now have a formula for focusing these ideas into a clearly defined strategy that I'll be able to use and present to my board etc.  Also being able to share ideas and get feedback from others was useful." - L. Bull, Irish Wildlife Trust

"I gained a new perspective on how to look at the issue of funding. I am ready now to start from the beginning, assess our position and follow the steps one at a time. The area of funding can seem overwhelming but when broken down it made the whole thing seem much more manageable." - M. Shelly O'Neill, Dignity4Patients

"I found the content of the workshop very useful on the strategy and what could be termed "governance" around fundraising. I find that quite daunting, but the presentation was well broken down into do-able tasks." - L. Alford, 3Ts

Who Should Attend: 

Managers, fundraisers, business developers, board members and anyone with an interest in seeking to diversify income of a non-profit organisation.
