CHOICE A - Introduction to Major Donor Fundraising

Delivered by Janet Ormerod

Recruiting major donors was once considered exclusive territory for the big national charities. However local charities and not-for-profits are now realising they also have the potential to tap into this growing source of income. Identifying and building relationships with supporters is at the heart of the process. In this interactive session you will gain an overview of the essential building blocks of successful major donor fundraising, enabling you to consider starting or further developing a major donor programme in your own organisation.

Janet has over twenty years’ experience of developing and fundraising for charities in the South East. These include Hove YMCA (now YMCA Downslink Group), and Sussex Community Foundation, where she played a key role in the early development of the charity, helping them raise a total of £17 million. She has now set up Nahira Consultancy, specialising in funding advice and consultancy for charities and not-for-profits. Working with a wide range of organisations in the South East, her aim is to help charities develop effective and focused funding strategies, and to be successful in growing and sustaining their work.

CHOICE B - Developing a Case for Support

Delivered by Donna Day-Lafferty

This sessions looks at what you need in your case for support and why. Delivered by Donna Day Lafferty, Senior Lecturer & Programme Coordinator, Charity Development BA (Hons.) University of Chichester.

CHOICE C - Fundraising using Social Media

Delivered by Richard Turner

Richard will speak on how fundraising needs to change and where social media fits as a way of telling your story and getting supporters to leverage their social capital. Not to see social media as another marketing channel to target people - it changes the way marketing (and so fundraising) now works as we are all now a channel - and your story is better coming from others not just you. Once you get this it becomes clearer what to focus on and how to inspire donors.

Richard has twenty five years experience as a fundraiser starting his career with Oxfam, and then as Director of Fundraising at FARM-Africa and ActionAid, and recently as Chief Fundraiser at the charity/social enterprise SolarAid. He was awarded Fundraiser of the Year by the Institute of Fundraising for the year 2000 during his time at FARM-Africa. With a reputation for being an entrepreneurial fundraiser he shares his learning by blogging regularly as @ifundraiser.
