Fundraising: Make it Happen – 28th November 2pm-5pm
This workshop will focus on the fundamentals of fundraising for cultural groups and organisations.
Together we will explore the process of fundraising using the ‘seven steps’ which cover:
- Who to ask for funding
- How to ask for it
- How to say thank you to your donors and supporters
The session will also look at how to develop an effective case for support for your project or organisation; what you should include and how to present it to potential supporters.
As this workshop is limited to 25 people, we ask that a maximum of 2 people per group sign up to enable a mix of groups and organisations to participate. Hand-outs will be provided at the session for you to share with other members of your group.

Here you will find a range of funders, including The Big Lottery, Creative Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund, who will be on-hand to answer your questions and provide information about funding and support available.
This workshop is coordinated by Voluntary Arts Scotland and delivered by Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage – a fundraising training programme led by Arts & Business Scotland with Archaeology Scotland, Built Environment Forum Scotland, greenspace scotland and Museums Galleries Scotland, a funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
