Course details: 
Every organisation, big or small, is faced with the question of their financial sustainability, on an almost daily basis. Funding cuts, increased demands on services, dealing with confidence in charities from the public are common problems that influence your ability to sustain your organisation.
In desperation, sometimes, we can be tempted to go looking for the silver bullet solution. It doesn’t exist! We believe it is important to look at funding and income holistically rather than focusing on finding a silver bullet solution.
The challenges are universal, but the solutions should be tailored to your needs. What this course does is provide you with a process and tools to adequately asses your own particular situation and come up with a funding model that stable, suitable and sufficient to your needs.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course you will:
  • understand what sustainable funding is and how it could work for your organisation
  • be able to recognise the main sources of income and their characteristics
  • have improved your knowledge on the trends in the voluntary sector economy, and how they affect your organisation
  • Have the skills to implement a more sustainable approach to funding in your work.

What Previous Attendees of This Workshop Have Said:

"I really enjoyed the introduction to the tools for seeing what fundraising avenues work for your organisation, such as the matrix map.  Also The Wheel's case study was really informative. Whilst I had lots of ideas going into the session, I now have a formula for focusing these ideas into a clearly defined strategy that I'll be able to use and present to my board etc.  Also being able to share ideas and get feedback from others was useful." - L. Bull, Irish Wildlife Trust

"I gained a new perspective on how to look at the issue of funding. I am ready now to start from the beginning, assess our position and follow the steps one at a time. The area of funding can seem overwhelming but when broken down it made the whole thing seem much more manageable." - M. Shelly O'Neill, Dignity4Patients

"I found the content of the workshop very useful on the strategy and what could be termed "governance" around fundraising. I find that quite daunting, but the presentation was well broken down into do-able tasks." - L. Alford, 3Ts

Who Should Attend:
