Case for Support

Free online webinars.

Jane Galloway of http://www.arclightsolutions.co.uk/ 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.
