Free Training for Small Charities: 11–12 March 2015, Solihull

The FSI is bringing two days of free training for the first time this year to Solihull so that small charities in the area can build the skills they need to become self-sustaining. The event offers courses on key fundraising skills such as Trusts & Foundations and Corporate Partnerships.

There is also training on Fundraising Strategy, Building your Case for Support and Demonstrating Your Impact. Courses include:

Wednesday 11 March
  • Strategy Planning/Risk Management - New to the 2015 programme: 2 half day workshops for charity Trustees and CEOs (attend one session or both)
  • Developing Your Case for Support - will empower participants to develop an inspiring internal document that creates a uniform message about why they are important as an organisation, how they make a difference and what people can do to support or get involved.
  • Supporting & Managing Volunteers - This course will benefit volunteer managers, volunteer coordinators and anyone with a responsibility for developing or overseeing volunteering in their organisation.
Thursday 12 March
  • Develop Your Fundraising Strategy - will provide a structured road map and relevant tools to enable you to link together fundraising sources and the areas you need to fundraise against, so that you can develop and implement a robust fundraising strategy.
  • Fundraising from Trusts & Foundations - will give participants the essential skills and knowledge they need to develop successful fundraising from trusts and foundations. 
  • Major Donor Fundraising - Will help participants identify, engage and secure major gifts for their charity.
