The aim of the Skilled Grantseeker Programme is to equip fundraisers with the essential skills required to be successful in raising funds from charitable trusts. It is the most respected and in-depth high value fundraising training programme in Europe. Over four days, we cover the fundamental skills of researching donors, developing successful proposals, building relationships, planning and target setting.
Since 2013, over 300 organisations have put their staff on this programme, from the British Museum, Christian Aid, Child Bereavement UK, Opera North to Leonard Cheshire. Half of our participants complete the full programme, which has spawned dozens of ongoing peer support networks - which continue learning for years after the programme has ended. Equally popular, many opt for one or two events to address their specific training needs.
All courses will be delivered by Bill Bruty.
For experienced fundraisers we offer a fresh and innovative approach. For new fundraisers we provide a comprehensive toolkit for a successful career in grantseeking.

Available places on the Spring 2020 programme are very limited, with one space for the Networking and Negotiating Skills course on 17th June and two places for the Target Setting and Tracking course on 15th July.
We are proposing to convert the forthcoming Skilled Grantseeker Programme to an online course. We hope to commence soon after the original start date of 15th April. We are currently in contact with all the participants who have booked onto this programme. If we are unable to run the events in Autumn 2020, we will also offer that as an online learning experience.
There are plenty of places for the programme starting in September 2020.
Each element will run twice each year in central London, normally from April to July, then September to December.

- Understanding Charitable Trusts and Mastering the Research Tools
