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 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.
