Webinar: Embracing Digital Fundraising

Income from fundraising has taken a severe blow for many organisations, this training will help you find ways to adapt your fundraising strategy and carry on with your fundraising efforts to keep your services up and running.

This course will be run in two parts, the first will help you to learn the theory, challenge your traditional fundraising methods and get you thinking about how your organisation can embrace this change. The second part will then provide you with practical guidance on how to actively design a template for a tailored digital fundraiser that your organisation can take forward after the training.
