Certificate in Great Fundraising

 

Leading a fundraising function sets you a challenging brief. And, as a leader, you’ll also face the expectations of a senior team who may not recognise the cultural, creative, and communicative changes required to get the fundraising results they want.

 

Great Fundraising is your opportunity to unblock these conflicts and develop a culture supportive of fundraising success.

There was so much learning, insight and thought-provoking discussion during the Great Fundraising Masterclass last year and it has already helped us to make a step change in our approach to fundraising. So much so that I’ve only had time to reflect on and action a fraction of the learning. I’m ready to re-visit the course content, absorb it again at a slightly slower pace and consolidate plans to take another huge leap forward.
