Applications are closing soon for museums in the Hampshire Solent region to join cohort 2 of the Heritage Lottery Funded Catalyst project ‘Inspiring a Culture of Philanthropy’.
Museums will develop fundraising skills through training, mentoring, practical activities, peer support and shadowing opportunities. They will also learn how to build relationships with the philanthropic community and understand how to raise the profile of the museum and showcase the heritage product.
The project aims to create a culture of philanthropy and inspire a real step change for both the museums and the philanthropic community in the area by supporting up to 30 museums over three years.
We are also seeking mentors who will work with the museums involved in the project by providing on-going support throughout the training programme. Mentors will not be paid but will be given training and career development opportunities to develop skills and build new connections.
To find out further information on both of these opportunities, contact Romilly Beard, Project Director on (01962 826701)
