September Training Opportunities
16 Sept: Major Donor Fundraising for Heritage Organisations – Dronfield, Derbyshire
Having even a few committed major donors onside can make a significant impact on your heritage organisation’s income, but finding the right ones, and bringing them on board, can be a daunting and nerve-wracking task. The workshop is intended to provide an overview of major donor fundraising and provide participants with the tools to start a major donor programme in their heritage organisation

17 Sept: Measuring and Communicating the Impact of Heritage Organisations for Funders – Museum of Royal Worcester, West Midlands
Recent research into funder motivations reveals that the heritage sector needs to do more to measure and report community impact to compete with other sectors. Heritage projects can be seen as less attractive to donors than those that are more able to clearly demonstrate social impact. Spend the day exploring the methods and benefits of impact reporting for fundraising using the NEF Proving and Improving toolkit and Charity Evaluation Service (CES) resources. Identify appropriate methods and tools relevant for measuring heritage impact for each delegate and develop ways to communicate impact to a range of heritage donors.
