About the Programme

FR 105 - Major Donors & Legacies is the fifth module in a comprehensive new fundraising programmes specifically targeted towards smaller organisations:

Over the course of this 3 hour module we will cover:

What is a major donor to you? 

Relationship building 

Making an ask 

Introducing a legacy programme 

Measuring impact

This module can be taken on its own or as part of the complete programme:

The full Bigger, Better, Bolder Fundraising programme comprises 7 individual modules. Each module will address a different area of fundraising and will be valuable for individuals seeking training in just that area. Together the 7 modules will provide a comprehensive training programme for small organisations who want to develop a diverse and effective fundraising programme.

Each module follows a similar structure - Intro to the topic, advantages and challenges of this type of fundraising, case studies, applying these strategies in smaller organisations, measuring success. This structure invites participants to engage with areas of fundraising that they are not as familiar with and to understand it in the context of what programmes they already run.

In addition to the 7 core modules the programme includes a series of discussion/networking opportunities for all participants. Experience has shown us that fundraisers benefit from the opportunity to discuss their experiences with each other, ask questions and build relationships with others who are in similar roles. These relationships last long after the programme has been completed and is a key part of the participants professional development.
