Grants, Trusts and Foundations Fundraising, 30 June and 14 July at 2pm

We know that many organisations are wondering “what next?” for their fundraising due to Covid-19. Funders were quick to respond with crisis funds, but many of us are now wondering how to fundraise for activities beyond this. We are pleased to bring you two Grants, Trusts and Foundations webinars, themed around keeping on track and making your assets work harder. Join with colleagues to hear how you can keep motivated and how to make stand-out applications.

Keep on track with your Grants, Trusts & Foundations FundraisingTuesday 30 June 2020, 2:00-3:00pm

Trusts & Foundations are giving out over £6.5 billion a year – in this session we will explore how you can access this support by keeping your fundraising work on track. We will cover:

  • How to keep momentum up during COVID-19 when funders are moving from emergency to recovery response
  • How to be proactive to our needs and not reactive to what funders want
  • Tools that will help you review your progress and plan for the future

Make your Grants, Trusts & Foundations assets work harderTuesday 14 July 2020, 2:00-3:00pm

Does your Case for support need a refresh? Funding applications not standing out? Storytelling and case studies not working well for you? Is your Trusts & Foundations toolkit missing something? In this session we will explore:

  • How to make your applications and letters to trusts and foundations stronger
  • How to make your writing clearer and stand out
  • Top tips on what works and the common traps people fall into

Both sessions will run via Zoom with a presentation and time for questions and answers at the end. You will be sent a link for Zoom after registration. The session will run for an hour with an option of an additional 30 minutes for further support from the facilitators.

Who should attend? People with responsibility for fundraising for their organisation, who have already tried to raise some funds from grants, trusts and foundations or who have done some research and are about to start.
