Fundraising During Challenging Times

  • 28th April 2022
  • 11:00 - 13:00
  • Online: Zoom

Grounded in a COVID-recovery context, this online Sound Connections workshop will provide the basics if you are starting to think about how to raise funds for your project or organisation. In this session, participants will learn about the current funding landscape, understand different ways of generating income, think about expenditure and budgets, plan for fundraising within project timelines and more!

In this session you will

  • Learn about the funding landscape and what’s changed, in flux and what’s stayed the same
  • Understand different ways of generating income: trusts and foundations, donations, crowd-sourcing, matched funding, in-kind funding
  • Discover ways of thinking about expenditure and budgets (often the most important element to a funder)
  • Consider who you or your organisation are, what you’re about and who you help
  • Match all of these questions with what funders are looking for
  • Planning for fundraising in your project timelines and being creative

This session is designed for organisations and individuals who are just starting out with fundraising, or who want a refresh of ideas. For example:

  • Project managers in music/arts
  • Community music and arts organisation staff
  • Music Education Hub staff and leaders
  • Workshop leaders/Animateurs
  • Early years music practitioners
