As competition heats up those precious grants from foundations, we have curated a series of workshops where the learning will be focused on the specific skills of grantseeking, such as ‘how to ask for funds’; ‘how to network with donors’ and ‘how to develop a pipeline. This is the most cost-effective way to get access to high quality training, from anywhere in the world, with each session only costing £45 ($60).
You can pick the exact skill you want to learn or improve, and get these new skills in a bite-sized package, with no travel time or costs; and, no need to get to a training room in London or any other city. You can join us from anywhere in the world and learn from experts all of over the world.
Every workshop has been adapted from our interactive style of in-person training.
Each live workshop will last for 90 minutes and to allow for maximum interactivity, will be limited to 24 participants.
You’ll have opportunities to properly meet and work with your fellow participants - our goal is to minimize passive learning. You’ll also be given comprehensive resource packs and notes for each workshop. All sessions will be run by Bill Bruty, in collaboration with a wide range of global presenters and experts, each with varied and significant experience - you will be astounded by the wide range of fundraising skills.
To encourage participation in these innovative workshops, we are offering 100 free places for people who are new to our online workshops. We'll allocate these places on a 'first come first served' basis. If you want to take up this offer then please email us on email@example.com. We will favour applications from people who have been made redundant or have been furloughed. There are small number of these places still available.
We will also give an additional free place to existing paid participants - we will contact people directly about this offer. We will also offer an additional free place on a range of workshops for all future paid for bookings in 2020.
Skilled Grantseeker and Bid Writing Boot Camp programmes
We are making the Skilled Grantseeker Programme and the Bid Writing Boot Camp available as online learning programmes. This will allow participants to join several online interactive workshops, receive comprehensive resource packs and enlist a mentor to help with the implementation of the learning. For both programmes these workshops are available in October and November 2020. We will also be running these programmes from January to March 2021.
In the light of the uncertain situation with social distancing guidelines in the workplace, we have, with great regret, decided not to run any in-person training courses for the foreseeable future. Our reputation has been built upon the powerful learning experiences we have created for face-to-face training and this was not an easy decision. But, we are very confident that the same levels of interactivity, person-centred learning and pure enjoyment can be established online.
