Giving to Heritage Evaluation & Case Studies

Giving to Heritage is a Heritage Lottery funded capacity building programme designed to increase the fundraising capabilities of individuals and organisations in the Heritage sector. It provides opportunities for individuals to develop their skills through a range of fundraising workshops, one-to-one consultancy sessions and webinars. Giving to Heritage is a joint venture between The Heritage Alliance and the Institute of Fundraising

On completion of the original two year programme an independent evaluation was undertaken by Consillium Research. You can download an overview of the full evaluation here.
