How to make your heritage organisation ready for investment

London workshop 27 September 2016 >/p>

This workshop is  aimed at those considering applying for social investment funds but we recognise that this source of funds may not be right for them. Attendees will also learn how to make their heritage organisation ‘investment ready’ to receive large sums of money to invest in a heritage project, whether the investment comes from a donation from a high net worth individual, a legacy donation or another source of funds.

New GTH workshops are available at the award-winning Coffin Works, Birmingham on 14 September 2016 and the SS Great Britain, Bristol on 27 April 2017. Understand how the Charities Act will come into force from July 2016 onwards, giving new powers to the regulator to disqualify trustees, new guidelines on fundraising practice, and new powers for trustees to apply for social investment funds.

Corporate Partnerships for Heritage

Corporate Partnerships for Heritage

New workshops, starting 21 June London

The impact of corporate partnerships on the cultural sector has been very much in the news recently. These new practical GTH workshops demonstrate how long term relationships, and even one off sponsorships, can be of benefit to heritage organisations. And it’s not just about the money – in-kind giving can be just as effective. We will be holding a repeat workshop at Kelmscott House, Hammersmith (former home of Victorian designer and conservationist William Morris) on 21 June. There will be Masterclasses for more experienced fundraisers on 2 December (Woking), 2 March 2017 (London) and in June 2017 (Birmingham). Masterclasses are also suitable for those who attended Corporate Partnerships earlier in the programme and who wish to take their skills to the next level.




Legacy Fundraising

Legacy Fundraising

New workshop content, starting 1 July, Bath

Legacy marketing is sometimes categorised as ‘too difficult’ and ‘long term results only’ when considering a fundraising strategy. Yet legacies have the capacity to transform a heritage organisation, and legacy fundraising is actually proven to be the most efficent method of raising funds. Why not train your volunteers to have legacy conversations? GTH is offering workshops in Bath (1 July 2016, Cambridge (26 January 2017) and London (9 May 2017)

How and when to apply for Social Investment Funds for Heritage

The UK has witnessed an explosion in the social enterprise economy. The UK social investment market is expected is estimated to grow by 20% per year and with a market of £480 m over the next 5 years (Ipsos Mori). The heritage sector has been slow to take up this new form of funding. The GTH programme will help to address this by launching a series of practical, easy to follow workshops, together with CAN Invest.

Workshops will initially be delivered at the following locations. Please register your interest by contacting mark.webb@theheritagealliance.org.uk
