Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage: New Courses

Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage now has a new schedule of training programmes open for bookings.

‘Planning to Progress’

This one-day course will provide you with an understanding of the significance and usefulness of an income generation plan and will provide you with the tools to construct an effective strategy for your organisation.

You will learn the principles of a fundraising model for heritage organisations and will begin to construct a strategy for your own organisation. You will explore: researching and identifying appropriate sources of private income; developing proposals; ‘making the ask’; and maintaining relationships with donors, funders or sponsors.

Tickets cost £25 for small to medium sized organisations and community organisations and £50 for larger charities and organisations.

A previous Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage training event

‘In Focus: Trusts Research on a Shoestring’ and ‘In Focus: Applying to Trusts & Foundations’ are two sessions taking place on Saturday 28th March in Perth.

‘Trusts Research on a Shoestring’  will provide you not just with the essentials of trusts and foundations research, but some practical tips and strategies on where to start and what to look for, especially if you don’t have access to industry-standard, but often expensive, resources and subscriptions.

‘Applying to Trusts & Foundations’ will include:

*an overview of where Trusts sit within the overall funding landscape

*the advantages and disadvantages of making applications

*an exploration of the various different types of trusts

*a guide to writing proposals

Tickets cost £25/£50 for each event. To book for one or both sessions please go to:

Please note, we kindly ask that a maximum of two people attend from any organisation/group.
