Success - go get it - fundraising training image

Fundraising training in turbulent times – a short course designed to help you write more compelling funding applications and improve your strike rate with funders.

About the course

With funder budgets under greater pressure than ever, and all of us in the jazz sector having to re-imagine what we do or at least how we might do it in the short term, it’s more important than ever that any funding application you submit is ‘on the money’.

If you’re confused by the jargon, not sure how best to answer funder questions, or which story to tell, this course is for you.

Course leader Julia Payne will help you get inside the real value of what you’re doing, think about how to tell a compelling story, and how to make sure that your budget storytelling adds up too.

Over 2 half day modules, Julia will share a host of useful insights, tips and tricks and real life examples.  Plus, Jazz Promotion Network’s Chair, Kim Macari, who works part time as a Relationship Manager at Arts Council England, will be dropping in to share her thoughts on what you need to do to up your strike rate with funders.

This course is presented in partnership with Jazz Promotion Network. For more details and to apply, visit the Jazz Promotion Network website.
