Training
We offer a full range of bespoke training programmes on critical topics such as donor retention & loyalty, branding, digital fundraising, direct response/direct marketing, monthly/sustained giving and fundraising planning. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we’ll be happy to supply a package tailored to your needs. We’ve worked with many clients in this way including Friends of the Earth, Amnesty International, and in the United States, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).

In the UK we also work in partnership with the Institute of Fundraising to offer their Certificate in Fundraising and Diploma in Fundraising qualification. Further details are available from Paul Marvell at the Institute of Fundraising. Both these courses are available in residential blocks and the Institute also offers an evening class in central London for individuals who prefer a less intensive route to their studies. For larger charities there is also the option of establishing an in-house variant of the Certificate/Diploma where content would be deliberately tailored to the needs of the employer. Our team specialize in the development of this kind of program and have worked in the past with major national charities such as UNICEF, the British Red Cross and Sue Ryder Care.

If you are interested in offering a fundraising qualification outside the UK, please contact us to discuss. We are working with fundraising professional bodies in other European countries and can almost certainly meet your needs, or direct you to someone who can.

In the United States we are presently working on the development of an Advanced Level Qualification for fundraisers. The new Advanced Diploma in Fundraising will be offered internationally in partnership with the Association of Fundraising Professionals, the European Fundraising Association and the Institute of Fundraising. It was offered for the first time in November 2013.

The Certificate in Fundraising is designed for individuals who want to improve their fundraising practice.

The Diploma in Fundraising is designed for individuals managing fundraising.

The new Advanced Diploma in Fundraising is designed for individuals who need to create an institutional and societal environment in which fundraising can flourish. It will be taught at Masters level and be delivered with modern pedagogical techniques including active learning and ‘just-in-time’ teaching.
