Resources for Heritage Fundraisers


Giving to Heritage was a Heritage Lottery funded capacity building programme designed to increase the fundraising capabilities of individuals and organisations in the Heritage sector. It provided opportunities for individuals to develop their skills through a range of fundraising workshops, one-to-one consultancy sessions and webinars.

The training opportunities were aimed at anyone actively fundraising in a small independent heritage organisation or organisation that manages heritage assets. 

The Giving to Heritage programme ended in December 2017 but you can still take advantage of our series of webinars and other resources listed on this page. You can also find the independent evaluation into the programme here.

You can also contact us to find out about other avenues of support available from the Institute of Fundraising.

I have found the Giving to Heritage programme to be a fantastic resource for people like me in the Heritage sector who have been tasked with finding ways of increasing income to our organisations - it is a steep learning curve but with help from Giving To Heritage trainers it is possible to see how to achieve our goals"

Giving to Heritage was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run in partnership with the Heritage Alliance (Lead partner).
