Our Manchester event will offer 80 delegate training places so that all small charities, wherever they are, can access the skills they need to become self-sustaining. This training day is part of the Small Local Charities and Community Groups Training Programme.
Training sessions cover a wide range of fundraising techniques and back office skills delivered by experienced and knowledgeable trainers.
Charity Leaders: Fundraising (AM Half Day)
One of the key strategic responsibilities of the Trustee Board is to ensure that the charity has sufficient resources to pursue its aims and objectives. This responsibility requires Trustees to take an active interest in fund development. This workshop will cover the key areas that Trustees should be focussing on to discharge their responsibility.
Charity Leaders: Risk Management (PM Half Day)
Charity trustees are responsible for ensuring that risks to the charity are regularly reviewed and that they focus their attention on taking actions to address the most serious risks to the charity. As a delegated role, senior staff (or those working directly to deliver services) should regularly review and assess the risks faced by their charity in all areas of its work and plan for the management of those risks. Risk is an everyday part of charitable activity and managing it effectively is essential if the charity is to achieve its key objectives and ensure the funds and assets are safeguarded.
Demonstrating Your Impact (Full Day)
Effectively demonstrating your impact to your key stakeholders such as donors, grant makers, partners, trustees, media and staff is essential for securing ongoing support for your work.
Developing Corporate Relationships (Full Day)
The course will look at the different ways in which companies may get involved with charities; whether that be through financial donations, gifts in kind, sponsorship or through employee volunteering.
Developing Community Fundraising (Full Day)
Community fundraising is large audience, lower return fundraising but they do bring many other benefits to the organization e.g. supporter and volunteer recruitment, awareness raising and keeping a profile locally.
