Setting yourself up for fundraising success
Fundraising is central to running charities, being able to execute projects and provide the best support possible to rare disease communities. Many rare disease organisations depend on community fundraising to run their projects and sustain them.
However, due to COVID-19, community fundraising has effectively stopped. This has left many of the organisations and charities that we support with gaps in funding that need to be filled.
With this in mind, from the 4th to the 6th of May 2020, we ran a three day online workshop focusing on the theme of ‘setting yourself up for fundraising success,’ with the ultimate aim of providing expertise in how to transition patient group funding away from community fundraising to applying to grants and foundations and accessing corporate funding.
What was covered?
- How to identify fundraising opportunities
- Writing successful fundraising applications
- Navigating corporate grants and sponsorship
