Fundraising training from "Local Giving.org"
On the 21 September CHYPPS will be holding a two-part workshop to help with the fundraising, marketing and promotion of your organisation or group. This event has been sponsored by 'Local Giving' who also are part of 'Just Giving' who are working towards enabling communities to learn about, wait for it- 'ONLINE FUNDRAISING'.
Start time: 10am tea and coffee for prompt start at 10.30am.
Time 10.30am until 12.00am.
Workshop tutors: Scott McMillan
This workshop will cover how to use social media to reach your stakeholders e.g. your fundraisers, supporters, new members, volunteers, the public, in fact, anyone in the local community.
You will learn how to set up an initial feeding point for information which then feeds into all your other social media connections (don't worry we will explain these and introduce you to some new ones and show you how to set them up)
This workshop will have 40 places and places must be pre-booked.
Lunch. Wow, if you have got this far WELL DONE!
Time: We know that your time is valuable and that you may fall into a lunchtime slump so we will be starting the next workshop at 12.30pm with a sandwich lunch break at 1pm.
12.30pm until 4.30pm
Tutor: James Carlin from Local Giving.
James will be here to introduce online fundraising 'Local Giving' data protection, setting up newsletters, gift aid and finding online donors and funders, also any social media that has not been covered in the morning.
This will enable you to identify and use on-line fundraising as a compliment to your existing ways of fundraising for your organisation. Amongst this, he will show you how to cover small achievable targets.
This workshop will have 60 places available and places must be pre-booked.
OK, listen up. If you want to come to only one workshop and then leave that is OK, all you have to do is book the bit that you want to be part of. Unfortunately, you can't just book the FREE SANDWICH LUNCH and then leave!
Places need to be booked by the Monday 11th September so that we can order in the scrummy food. We do ask that organisation only send one representative so that as many organisations as possible can come along and benefit from this info.
