Fundraising Training Ltd was created by Bill Bruty in 2002.
Since then, we have established a range of successful fundraising courses that have attracted participants from hundreds of charities, including some of the largest in the UK: British Red Cross, Diabetes UK, Salvation Army, Cancer Research UK, the National Trust and UNICEF UK.
Fundraising Training Ltd has developed and run training courses and consultancy projects all over the world, including extensive experience of supporting fundraising by local NGOs in Africa. We have also run training courses in South America and Asia. Our clients are across the world, including International Rivers in the USA; ICS in the Netherlands; IDEA, based in Stockholm and Mental Health Perspectives in Lithuania.
From 2002 to 2012 we created and ran the Fundraising Trainee Programme in the UK, which became the single largest entry point into a fundraising career; giving a first step in fundraising for over 200 people. Over 90% are still in the sector and many have become senior fundraising managers in well-known organisations, such as UNICEF UK and the University of London.
When setting up Fundraising Training Ltd, Bill’s mission was to enrich fundraising by nurturing new talent and growing the skills and creativity of all fundraisers, by a unique and original approach to training. In particular, there is a specialism in the field of grantseeking.
