Fundraising For Schools

This year, we’ve been hearing the need from schools and teachers to learn more about fundraising and grant proposals for Arts in education… so we listened!

This September we ran two FREE online sessions on Arts fundraising for schools. Watch the recordings below.

Cause4: Fundraising In Arts Education 

This short 1 hour workshop aims to support participants to think through how to raise funds to support cultural activity in schools. It will cover the key components of developing a compelling story and identify some key funders that will support work in schools. We will also look at examples of other ways that schools are generating funds for arts and cultural activity  Finally, we will consider the key infrastructure to have in place to effectively fundraise, and manage the funds once they arrive.

The workshop will be led by David Johnson, Director of Strategy and Programmes and Cause4, a social enterprise that supports charities, companies and individuals raise vital income.
