Evidence-Based Fundraising Event

Simple ways to collect evidence to strengthen your funding applications

If you want to grow your income in today’s highly challenging environment, proving the difference your work makes should be first on your fundraising to do list. Whilst many small charities struggle to do this, it needn’t be difficult!


About this event

Grants from charitable trusts and foundations are a good source of funding for small charities but also fiercely competitive. One of the key reasons that applications are unsuccessful is because charities fail to provide evidence of the difference their work makes – their impact.

This training will help to give you a competitive edge in your funding applications, focusing on practical hints and tips on how to collect evidence to strengthen your funding applications.


This training course is designed for staff working for small charitable organisations, who want to strengthen their fundraising applications to trusts and foundations.


Learning Outcomes

• Participants will gain knowledge of how evidence can increase income

• Participants will gain assurance that it needen’t be difficult

• Participants will gain ideas – practical examples to start their thinking
