Giving to Heritage

Do you need to fundraise for a project that has a heritage focus? Find out more at

The Heritage Alliance, together with its partner, the Institute of Fundraising is offering high quality, subsidised training in heritage fundraising. For only £20 a head for a full day’s training, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform the resilience of the independent heritage sector!

Attendees on our workshops so far have been learning a number of valuable new skills in developing a heritage fundraising strategy and making the heritage case in a competitive donor marketplace. Projects have included upgrading a water mill, expanding a small museum, funding a new archaeological excavation, adding community outreach to a historic building project, promoting the heritage of a national park and funding the skills required for stained glass production and repair. The workshops have been very well attended and positively received:

“To be able to access this level of training is hugely valuable for a small outfit like ours”

“The structure of the day was excellent – really useful and practical information”

“Good exercises and opportunities for networking”

“ Great to meet other organisations in a similar position”

More heritage fundraising subjects and details of the HLF-sponsored Giving to Heritage programme are available on We always use interesting heritage locations such as the SS Great Britain, Royal Pavilion BrightonIronbridge MuseumBrading Roman Villa and Durham Cathedral.

Anyone who needs to fundraise for a heritage-related project can attend the training events. It is not necessary to be a Heritage Alliance member or to join the Institute of Fundraising. Nor is it necessary to be a member of a specific heritage organisation. But the project for which you are fundraising must have a heritage focus.
