What does your fundraising plan for the coming year look like? Could it look better? More realistic? More rooted in current circumstances?

At some point in the not-too-distant future this horror show of a year will end. However, no sooner will we have caught our breathe before we are thrust into worrying about the next year.

So, what does your fundraising plan for next year look like?

In a year of increased need for funding and increased competition you can’t just leave it to chance that you will raise the money you need. So if your normal approach is to wait and see what funding opportunities arise, or if your fundraising plan isn’t much more than your budget shortfall circled in red pen, this session is for you.

(N.B. This is the first of a five session specialist fundraising programme put on by SHARE this spring. If your role is very much geared to fundraising for your museum you may want to book for all 5 of the sessions. This is via a different event listing and is called ‘Spring 21 Fundraising Programme’).

If you are looking for a one-off session on this topic, on 2nd February, David Burgess (Director of Apollo Fundraising) will be running a half-day training session on how to write a realistic and usable fundraising plan to help your museum raise more money.

Delivered via Zoom, this interactive session will take you through a step-by-step process to develop a fundraising plan that is right for you. It will help you to see:• How to tell which funding sources are right for you• Where the opportunities and threats are in fundraising in 2021, and what you can do about it• What needs to be included in your fundraising plan for it to be useful• How to write a clear and realistic action plan that everybody in your organisation can get on board with

Join us to gain fresh insight to boost your fundraising in 2021, connect with colleagues trying to overcome the same challenges you are, and sense check your existing fundraising plans to give yourself the best chance of success next year.

Here’s what previous SHARE course participants have said about David’s fundraising training:

David presented in a natural and lively manner. He was open, friendly and factual, and information was conveyed in a very clear way. The content of his presentation was interesting and useful and I learnt a lot. He engaged the audience and we felt able to ask questions without being intimidated by the information.

I thoroughly enjoyed the session and found the teaching to be both engaging and incredibly useful.

The entire session was really useful. I’ve gone from zero knowledge to lots!
