A workshop entitled ‘Fundraising in Challenging Times’ is being held on June 26 in the Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre, Society of St Vincent de Paul, 1 Mill Street.
This workshop is being run by the Wheel, for charity and community organisations and will be facilitated by William Corless of YellowWood. This course is suitable for fundraisers, finance managers, CEOs, managers, senior staff and board members.
The Wheel is a support and representative body connecting community and voluntary organisations and charities across Ireland. Established in 1999, The Wheel has evolved to become a resource centre and forum for the community and voluntary sector. As fundraising is a personal and organisational effort, the workshop aims to combine those efforts to create positive difference to your fundraising activities.
These are tough times for fundraisers. Earned income and funding grants are in decline and the future often looks uncertain. The difference between fundraising success and failure these days hinges upon our ability to adapt and innovate to this changing environment. This fundraising workshop has been specifically designed by William Corless to harness those very key skills.
William Corless of YellowWood.ie uses a multi-disciplined approach of training, coaching and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP ). This workshop will stimulate participants to focus on areas of development within themselves, their team and organisation. This experiential workshop will focus on ideas, innovation, partnership and business development in order to help you achieve your fundraising goals.
The workshop will be delivered in two parts: the dynamic business model and idea generation, innovation and social media. Part One - Dynamic Business Model: The first part of the workshop focuses on introducing a dynamic business model to your organisation and how to demonstrate your value to your beneficiaries and funders while capturing the impact of your success. This section of the workshop will also highlight where you can make improvements in the way you work and highlighting your strengths while maximising your potential. Part Two - Ideas and Innovation: The second part of the workshop focuses on what it takes to generate new ideas, on being resourceful and the ways to implement that success on a personal and organisational level.
