26/01/2015 Last year’s Fundraising for Hospices conference in partnership with Hospice UK (formerly Help the Hospices) touched on a number of fundraising challenges that the hospice sector contends with, including donor fatigue resulting from a need to meet funding targets from same geographic area and populace. This year’s programme will draw from the learning that came from the 2014 event and look at practical ways to improve your fundraising practices.
26/01/2015 Black Fundraisers UK is pleased to present a one-day Introductory Certificate in Fundraising course. This one-day accredited course develops knowledge and skills for those not yet working in the sector who wish to find out more.
It replaces and improves upon our previous 'What is Fundraising?' course, as it leads into the professional fundraising training process.
The course consists of four units:
• The Fundraising Environment
• Role of Fundraising
• Fundraising Skills
• Learning about Fundraising
27/01/2015 Bookings for this course closed on 22 October 2014. Pre-course work is required to ensure students are fully prepared for the first training session and the qualification takes approximately 9 months to complete. There are set deadlines for assignments (please see below) and students need to be working in a fundraising capacity (either voluntary or paid) in order to complete the work based assessments.
28/01/2015 Attendees will be introduced to a structured model that can be used to develop bespoke fundraising plans to meet any fundraising need. The course will offer practical guidance on how to create and implement the plan; utilising existing people and resources to maximise income.
29/01/2015 Don’t miss out on this opportunity to attend the IoF’s networking breakfast, followed by a thought-provoking duo of debates on how life for the fundraiser might change following this year’s election, and how successful our sector has really been at keeping public trust.

03/02/2015 A legacy gift will often be the largest single donation a supporter will ever make, with legacies worth around £2bn to the charity sector, yet many organisations don’t pursue a legacy strategy. Understanding why people make such gifts, and how to handle what is often a simultaneously sensitive and daunting topic, will help you tap into this source of funds and boost your charity’s income. This inspiring course covers all aspects of legacy fundraising, focussing in particular on methods which have minimal cost implications. So if you have no legacy budget or a very limited one this is the course for you!

Following the sell-out launch in 2014 this intensive three day residential learning experience will help shape you into a more effective major donor fundraiser. Use this opportunity as a catalyst for change to help transform major donor fundraising in your charity. Don't delay - places are limited!
