How to run a successful community fundraising event - NOW FULL

This fun and interactive workshop will show you how to organise and run a successful community and fundraising event, giving you a strategic framework to work from – be it a large scale mass participation event, or a smaller scale community event.

You will find out about how to ensure your fundraising events and community activities raise as much income and awareness as possible for your cause. You will also discover what marketing tools will be the most appropriate for your organisation, gain an insight into effective sales techniques, understand why people ‘buy into your cause’ and how you can increase your brand identity and build customer loyalty through your community and fundraising events.

We will cover:
Identifying the right event and community activity for your purposes
The importance of defining your target audience
Developing additional income streams at your events
How to recognise, record and reduce the risks
Budget planning and attracting sponsorship  - to keep costs to a minimum
How to source Gifts in kind, reduce costs and maximising income from your events
Participants will be encouraged to share ideas and learn from one another’s experiences, with the emphasis of the session being on generating creative marketing and fundraising ideas that you can take back into your workplace.

Keeping volunteers on board and motivated

We all like to know what is expected of us, especially when we join a new organisation be it paid work, or more social and voluntary, so this workshop will look at volunteer management, motivation and retention methods and the key factors that help organisations retain volunteers.

Wednesday 16th Jan 2019. 3 hour afternoon workshop 1pm to 4pm, St Paul's Centre, presented by Jane Galloway of  http://www.arclightsolutions.co.uk/

Need to find more volunteers for your group, club or charitable organisation?

We have arranged the following training for January. All Sessions are at St Paul's Centre, presented by Jane Galloway of  http://www.arclightsolutions.co.uk/

A new format we are trying is to condense the sessions by using an introduction 'podcast', followed by a one hour workshop. You have a choice of two one-hour workshops. Listen to and watch the podcast then book on one of the sessions to follow up.

If you’re struggling to find new volunteers to help you run things, or people are leaving as soon as they join, then why not come along to this free 1 hour AJC workshop, to discover how to attract and find suitable volunteers for your group/club or cause.

No time – then simply register and have a listen to the Volunteer Recruitment Introductory podcast of the session and if you want to know more after that, just book on to the follow up interactive workshop, on managing and Keeping volunteers on board and motivated.

Safe Recruitment

Safe Recruitment Training will be a real asset to you, to make sure you take all the right steps to know about the person that you are considering taking on - equally important for taking on staff or volunteers, including committee members. As charities, we all have a responsibility to have confidence that we have done the right checks, so far as is possible, to know that we are introducing suitable people into our organisations. Don't just depend on DBS checks, checking CVs, taking references, and meeting the person face to face are all equally important. You will learn many techniques and things to think about that you may not have considered.

This training is equally important and complementary to safeguarding training. Please book at least one member of your committee or staff on this training.
