Whether you are looking for internal training for your staff, or shared learning opportunities for a number of organisations, Apollo Fundraising can help. We provide training programmes on a range of topics, including:
Despite it being a crucial part of fundraising, the act of asking someone for money is often cited by fundraisers as being the most daunting part of their job. This course helps you to make compelling asks in a confident manner.
Trusts and Foundations represent a vital income stream for most arts and culture but the process of securing funding is getting increasingly more competitive. This course will ensure you have the skills and tools you need to stand out from the crowd.
Legacy giving is one of the fastest growing sources of philanthropic support, yet the arts and culture sector has been slow to act on this. This session will look at why legacies are so important and how you can introduce a legacy programme within your organisation.
If you want to succeed in arts fundraising you are almost certainly going to need to know how to raise money from individuals. This course will introduce the different types of individual giving before looking at what this means for your organisation.

Fundraising is a team game and artists have a key role to play. However, this can be a daunting prospect.
