Delivered through the medium of English

This webinar will be delivered using Zoom.


The world is changing. Costs are increasing while grant opportunities are decreasing. This learning will support you to look at a diverse range of income stream to future-proof your organisation.


In this session you will be guided through effective methods for grant writing, tender writing, income generation and digital donations by experienced fundraisers.
In the session, you will also receive a specific training session on digital fundraising from Givey (Joint-best by Charity Digital for money given to charities 4 years in the running); according to the Charity Digital Skills Report 2023, almost two thirds (59%) of small charities want to improve their online fundraising, a significant increase from 49% last year. The report also found that more than half (55%) of small charities say they are poor at digital fundraising, an increase on 49% last year. This suggests that there is a growing need for small charities to improve their digital fundraising skills.
