Giving to Heritage, run by the Heritage Alliance and the Institute of Fundraising, has been providing high quality, low cost training in all areas of fundraising since May 2014. They are now looking to add to this support for museums and heritage organisations through a fundraising mentoring programme. If you have at least two years of fundraising experience and the time to share it with other organisations, this might be a great opportunity for you.
Previous mentors have said:
“I thought that the IOF Mentoring scheme would be all about me ‘giving back.’ Wrong! The course proved that you can still teach an old(ish) dog new tricks, and the opportunities for networking with specialists from other areas of fundraising were priceless.”
“The training was excellent and I’ve used it in my day job, to help my team develop and it’s been helpful for 1:1s too.”
The scheme offers:
- an opportunity to share your fundraising knowledge and skills to help another fundraiser
- a free day of training in mentoring skills, that you can use in your day-to-day work as well as on the mentoring scheme
- great for your career development, the experience can enhance your management and team building skills
- support, collaboration, skill sharing and access to new networks through the mentoring group
The closing date for applications has been extended to 26th October.
