Using Digital Tools for Creative Fundraising

Are you one of the 50% of charities without a digital strategy? Could you benefit from using digital tools to support fundraising?

This practical course gives people from any scale of organisation, or freelancers, the tools to make the most out of digital fundraising (email, web, social) with minimal time, skills and budget. Expect practical digital exercises so do bring a phone, tablet or laptop.

By the end of the day, you will have:

  • Greater confidence in choosing and using digital tools and channels for fundraising
  • An understanding of how to measure digital results
  • An awareness of the digital fundraising options available to your organisation or project, its audience and supporters
  • An awareness of new data protection requirements
  • Knowledge of how other arts and cultural organisations are using digital for fundraising

Who is it for?

This course is for people who are early in their fundraising career or established in another discipline who want to understand more about how to incorporate fundraising skills into their work.

The one-day course is from 11am – 5.30pm. Lunch is included.
