Crystal Palace Community Trust is offering voluntary and community sector organisations a subsidised in-person fundraising training course

The course will focus on:

  • Sources of funding
  • Funder research
  • Fundraising planning
  • Creating your own fundraising ‘story’
  • Developing your fundraising ‘template’ for grant applications

This is a practical course that aims to update participants on sources of funding in the world of grant making and provide information about potential funding sources.

The second half of the day will be focused on supporting you to develop your individual fundraising template which can be used to help you complete grant applications. After the course, participants can also submit draft funding applications for a ‘critical friend’ assessment.
