Introducing the Sustainable Fundraising Development Programme
A ten-month programme designed to build the expertise, confidence and fundraising momentum of professional fundraisers and their managers.
These masterclasses provide the strategies to improve on each charity’s strengths, and crucially, take advantage of areas which have been under-developed.
This diversification reduces reliance on one or two areas and makes charities better able to withstand changes (economic, social, technological, political) in the volatile fundraising environment.
These sessions focus on the key areas of fundraising likely to suit small and medium-sized charities, as well as improving vital areas such as strategic thinking and resilience:
- Major Gifts and Trusts & Foundations (3 days – includes Influencing Donors and Writing to Influence)
- Legacy fundraising (2 days)
- Individual Giving (2 days)
- Corporate fundraising (2 days)
- Fundraising leadership skills and resilience (2 days – includes developing fundraising strategy, budgeting and how to thrive in a demanding fundraising role)
Bright Spot is dedicated to helping fundraisers build powerful habits and create lasting change. We’ve found that one-to-one coaching is a powerful tool for helping fundraisers implement the techniques and create momentum.
This kind of coaching is encouraging, thought-provoking, and, at times, challenging. It enables fundraisers to see their world in a new light. These new perspectives make it easier to take bold, confident action.
Each participant will have five one-hour coaching calls as part of their programme.
Online Learning and Support
All participants will get one year’s access to the online training courses, monthly webinars, community and bi-annual Bright Spot LIVE events through the Bright Spot Members Club.
We have found that the more different ways you can offer learners access to strategies and the belief that progress is possible, the easier it becomes for them to implement what they’ve learned.
Therefore, all participants will receive copies of our books, Donors for Life by Craig Linton and Paul Stein and The Fundraiser Who Wanted More by Rob Woods, and e-books Pitch to Win and How to be a Millionaire Magnet by Rob Woods.
