Fundraising during challenging times

Grounded in a COVID-recovery context, this Sound Connections workshop will provide the basics if you are starting to think about how to raise funds for your project or organisation.

  • In this session you will
  • Learn about the funding landscape and what’s changed, in flux and what’s stayed the same
  • Understand different ways of generating income: trusts and foundations, donations, crowd-sourcing, matched funding, in-kind funding
  • Discover ways of thinking about expenditure and budgets (often the most important element to a funder)
  • Consider who you or your organisation are, what you’re about and who you help
  • Match all of these questions with what funders are looking for
  • Planning for fundraising in your project timelines and being creative

Who is it for?

  • This session is designed for organisations and individuals who are just starting out with fundraising, or who want a refresh of ideas. For example:
  • Project managers in music/arts
  • Community music and arts organisation staff
  • Music Education Hub staff and leaders
  • Workshop leaders/Animateurs
  • Early years music practitioners
