Legacy & In Memorial Fundraising

This workshop will introduce you to the key fundraising principles connected to Legacy and In Memorial funding.

TIn an ever increasingly competitive ‘funding’ marketplace, legacy and in memorial income should not be ignored. Getting the fundraising basics right, will allow you to overcome the barriers to legacy promotion and widen your appeal to potential donors.

We will look at how to get your legacy and in memorial marketing campaign up and running, how to promote and market it appropriately, as well as how to write up a strategic Legacy fundraising plan. 

We will also cover:

  • Understanding the motivation of your target audience.
  • Getting legacies on to the fundraising agenda.
  • Engaging and building relationships with donors/supporters.
  • Promoting your legacy and in memorial campaign.

Good Governance:

How to set up and run my charity properly.

Running a non-profit making organisation (charity, voluntary group or social/sports club) should be fun and satisfying but it can also be challenging, especially if you’re not too sure what is meant to be happening, what legal stuff you need to comply with (or not) and you don’t even know who to ask.

If you want to know how to better manage your voluntary organisation to help stop it all going wrong, then why not come along to this interactive workshop to meet people ‘in the same boat’ share and learn from best practice when it comes to setting up and running your organisation.

Learning about the right way to run your organisation (good governance principles) will help keep you on track with managing your organisation, ensuring success and taking the stress factor out, so it’s more fun. We will look at ethics and Etiquette and why it matters how you run your non-profit making organisation.

Fundraising Plans & Strategies

This workshop will enable people involved in managing fundraising to develop a fundraising strategy for their organisation.

Having a clear fundraising strategy and sound plans are essential to help keep your organisation on track with its fundraising goals and to get the best returns from your time, resources and budget.

This workshop will equip you with the knowledge, skills and techniques to develop and successfully implement a great fundraising strategy and to be able to:

  • Research and use the information required to build your strategy and plans.
  • Analyse past performance in order to inform ‘more profitable’ future activities.
  • Identify and evaluate the best fundraising sources for your organisation.
  • Integrate different forms of fundraising into your plan.
  • Identify the risks associated with your strategy and how to manage them.

Participants will be encouraged to share ideas and learn from one another’s experiences, with the emphasis of the session being on generating creative fundraising ideas that you can take back into your workplace.

Case for Support

Free online webinars.

Jane Galloway of has prepared 3 short webinars on fundraising, 'A Case for Support'. Jane was due to come to the island last month, so instead has prepared these 3 webinars on a subject close to every charity's heart at the moment, how to raise funds for your cause. You will find out how to create a great ‘Case for support’ that will win hearts and minds, covering topics such as:

  • What to include
  • Who it is for
  • What it might look like

They are each approximately 20 minutes long and you can dip in and out of these 3 at your leisure, at home. You can also speed them up, I would suggest no faster than 1.25, otherwise she sounds like a chipmunk!

Once you are satisfied, and have some questions, you can join the live Q & A session on Thursday 30th July beginning at 5pm, for approximately one hour. Even if you have no questions, join in the Q & A as you may learn even more.

The webinars are available now, here:
Part one:
What is a Case for Support?
What goes in it?
Supporting documents required
25 mins
Part two:
Who is it relevant for?
Stakeholders and involvement tools

Part three:
