Booking is now open for our upcoming SW Museum Skills: Plus sessions, this November.

Developing Your Fundraising Strategy

A family walk through a galleryThis session will allow attendees to begin to develop fundraising strategies for their museum. We will be running two identical sessions (please only book onto one session).

Through a mixture of practical exercises and case studies, attendees will consider what is a fundraising strategy; why do you need one and why now; how to create a fundraising strategy that works for your organisation and how to address possible barriers to implementation.

The day will also touch on potential ethical issues and regulation frameworks that attendees will need to be aware of when implementing fundraising strategy.

This course is designed as a follow up for attendees of our Introduction to Fundraising Strategies sessions hosted in January 2019. Prospective attendees who have a foundation of knowledge of the different types of fundraising and know how to create a case for support, but didn’t attend the introductory session, are also welcome to attend.
