Title Free Workshop: Keeping Fundraising Applications Simple

If you have a strong passion for something to happen in your community, you will want to attend this free workshop which will look at good funding ideas, selling your idea to others, how to research your need to prove your case, and provides lots of useful advice on writing bids.

Aimed at those who already have attended the ‘Setting Up A Charity’ workshop, you will come with a clear project idea and project budget in hand. During the 2.5 hours, you will re-draft your project plan and turn it into a draft funding application (£10,000 to £25,000). This is very practical and interactive in style.

How this and similar workshop(s) runs:
Each workshop lasts 2.5 hours and will include an expert presentation, group work to allow attendees to share ideas and solutions, as well as time for individual networking. It will be run at CVA Resource Centre by Claudia Demuth. If you have particular needs, please let us know when booking. Please arrive by 10:15am at the latest, as the workshops start promptly at 10:30am.

How bookings are managed:
We expect workshops to be very popular. Up to 20 people can attend. Bookings will be taken and assessed as received. Priority will be given to: Croydon based individuals / groups who have attended capacity building workshops / received in-depth support during the last six months. If you do not fall into this category, you will be automatically added to the waiting list (in date order). Two weeks before each workshop date, we will offer free workshop spaces to the waiting list.

Who is running the workshops:
As an experienced coach and fundraising trainer, Claudia Demuth helps not for profits to set up, effectively deliver, and carefully reflect on income generation / business planning approaches. During the last 20 years Claudia has supported a wide range of charities, social enterprises and sub-regional partnerships to raise funds from sources such as the Big Lottery, Dept of Health or ESF, as well as acting as a critical eye for those wanting to set up great new projects. Currently an associate for the Law Centres Network, the School for Social Entrepreneurs, and Homeless Link she uses expert coaching and action learning techniques to encourage people to think outside of the box. Clients really value Claudia’s ability to quickly identify organisational stumbling blocks and ask hard questions which help challenge long-held assumptions, whilst bringing humour and patience to this sometimes painful process! With 20 years’ experience in funding panels, commissioning, business planning and project management, she prefers to keep things really simple and enjoys most helping people to discover their own ‘light-bulb’ moments. In her spare time, she coaches long-term unemployed back into work and helps to maintain Bushy Park’s woodlands.
