If you can't attend our face-to-face training sessions this e-learning is for you!
Becoming reliant on one source of income is risky, considering different funding sources will help widen the funding and finance options open to you.
This interactive bite-sized e-learning will help you to consider different types of funding sources appropriate for your organisations needs, capabilities, capacity and values.
You can complete the e-leaning at your own pace, at whatever time is suitable for you, within a 2 week window.
This session will help you:
• Explore the different sources of funding and finance for charitable projects
• Consider the advantages and disadvantages of each funding source
• Identify funding sources appropriate for your organisation
• Think about your next steps required to explore potential funding sources.
Please note the e-learning is an alternative to our face-to-face training programme; the e-learning contains some hand outs and exercises featured in our Introduction to fundraising and Diversify your income sessions.
This session is aimed at those new to fundraising who would like to explore different funding sources. It is also suitable for those who would like to reflect upon the different funding sources open to their organisations or project.
