Major donor fundraising during lockdown and beyond

Monday 06/07 | 09:00 - 09:00 | Online

'The Institute of Fundraising’s RAISE: Arts Culture & Heritage programme is delighted to present the ‘Major Donor Fundraising During Lockdown and Beyond’ session. The session will explore how can cultural organisations raise money from major donors in a world with no in-person dinners, coffee meetings, exhibitions or tours? How do you look after your existing supporters and better still ask them for gifts during a health crisis? How realistic is it to build a pipeline of new prospects at this time and how do you convert them to longer-term supporters? In these fast-changing times, no one yet has all the answers but experienced cultural and heritage sector major donor fundraisers Mark Bains (Wordsworth Trust), Margaret Clift (National Museums Scotland), Charlotte di Corpo (Glasgow Life/the Burrell Collection) and Victoria Symes (impact fundraising) are here to share their recent experiences during the height of the pandemic and their plans for major donor fundraising during lockdown and beyond. About RAISE: Arts, Culture & Heritage RAISE is a four-year programme that supports arts and culture sector fundraisers across England through networking events, mentoring, professional development and bursaries. We are an Arts Council England funded four-year programme delivered in partnership with the IoF Cultural Sector Network, Black Fundraisers UK and Young Arts Fundraisers.
