On this moving into fundraising course you will spend time learning how an effective fundraiser works. You will look at current fundraising opportunities and how a fundraiser can make sure that they are fundraising from areas that return the most investment.

You will then apply your learnings to create a fundraising strategy for your own charity. We will use the Complete Fundraising Handbook, the book you get for free on the course, to make sure that the lessons learnt in the classroom can be taken back to the office.
