Fundraising during challenging times – Sound Connections

Posted: 10/03/2022

We will cover:

  • The funding landscape and what’s changed, in flux and what’s stayed the same

  • Different ways of generating income: trusts and foundations, donations, crowd-sourcing, matched funding, in-kind funding

  • Different ways of thinking about expenditure and budgets (often the most important element to a funder)

  • Who you or your organisation are, what you’re about and who you help

  • Matching these questions with what funders are looking for

  • Planning for fundraising in your project timelines and being creative

The course will be interactive and task-based.
