Arts Fundraising Training

Are you looking for “informative, engaging and inspiring” arts fundraising training? 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:

An Introduction to Fundraising

Fundraising is a team game and requires a number of people playing different roles.  This includes non-fundraisers, including artists, board members and volunteers. This session, provides an introduction to fundraising, covering some basic principles, the characteristics of different funding streams and the journey from identifying potential supporters to securing donations…and beyond!

Fundraising from Trusts and Foundations

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.

Increasing Individual Giving

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.

Making the Ask

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.

Loving Legacy Fundraising

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.

Planning a Fundraising Campaign

Fundraising campaigns can be hard work, placing pressure on staff and volunteers. However, they can have a transformational impact on your organisation. This sessions looks at the key things you need to consider when planning your campaign, including how to build momentum before, during and after the campaign.
