Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy

Booking is now open for a set of five ‘Essential Fundraising Skills' one-day training courses on a range of key topics taking place across England between October and April. These courses are suitable for anyone involved in fundraising or wanting to develop fundraising skills in the arts/cultural sector. Each course costs £95+VAT but CVAN members can benefit from preferential pricing, saving up to £125 if you book all 5 courses. There is also a chance to catch their half-day training course in Trustee Leadership in Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy in London in October. Full details and online booking is available here

One of the first courses running is ‘Using and Managing Data in Fundraising’ at Dance City in Newcastle upon Tyne on 21 October, and I would be particularly grateful if you could help spread the word to your local & regional networks. We have found courses in the North East a difficult sell in the past, and any ideas or contacts you can share with us that we might also approach would be much appreciated.
