This interactive session provides participants with an introductory broad overview of the different ways of raising money from individuals for their projects such as online giving platforms, Gift Aid and running lotteries and quiz type activities at events.
Participants will begin to explore how to collect money from individuals that are appropriate to the work of their group, organisational capacity, and to help widen their funding base.
We are excited to be working with guest tutor Andy Kershaw, a former BBC Broadcast journalist and presenter with 19 years’ experience. Andy is now a freelance journalist and media trainer.
This session has recently been updated to take place over a full day.
