RAISE Events

Through our bursaries, RAISE aims to enable arts, cultural & heritage sector fundraisers across England to engage with the Institute of Fundraising events.

Our monthly events are a great opportunity to make connections within your sector and find out from your peers about the latest in art, culture & heritage fundraising and development.

Coronavirus update - We are delighted to announce we are taking our training, qualifications and RAISE events programme online and into virtual delivery. We are currently working with leading experts and specialists in our sector to create and deliver exciting programmes of 'virtual' live training and events using Zoom

More than ever fundraisers want to stay connected, learn new skills and share their experiences. We are here to support you and make that happen. We are updating our training and events pages frequently with new information so please keep checking-in with us regularly.
