One of the crucial questions in high value fundraising is “Who makes the first move?” Do most examples of significant funding arise from pro-active approaches from NGOs; or is it the donor who tends to start the discussion? From analysis of charity’ experience, there are five common pathways to find new high value funders or, to secure larger gifts from existing funders. These five options are based upon the analysis of 320 case studies of high value first gifts and major transformations in giving from trusts and high net-worth individuals.

Professional fundraising coach and trainer, Bill Bruty will take delegates through the 5 pathways that a high-value gift can find its way to your organisation and what practical action you can take to leverage each pathway to increase the chances of a transformational gift for your organisations.

Bill will be joined by Lee Lloyd, Head of High Value Giving at Child Bereavement UK to share his experiences of working with major trusts and foundations and how these principles can be applied to small and medium sized charities.

This course is relevant if your organisation is looking to secure gifts from Trusts and Foundations, Corporates and/ or High-net worth individuals.

The event begins from 1.30pm for festive light refreshments and networking with your fundraising peers. Speakers will start at 2.30pm promptly.
