How would the School help you as a young fundraiser?

Fundraising is a great career with loads of opportunity to grow and develop in and out of the arts. It’s also increasingly a core skill for anyone who wants to grow into a managerial or leadership position.

But often arts organisations — especially smaller ones — work in silos, so you only learn how to be successful in one area: trusts, online, membership, or sponsorship. Persuading your boss to invest in you by attending the National Arts Fundraising School can change all that.

You’ll emerge from the online or onsite programme confident and competent in every aspect of fundraising: from online mass engagement to successfully asking a Major Donor for £50K and more. You’ll understand all the key ideas and frameworks you need to know about: supporter journeys, capital vs. revenue campaigns, donor motivators and using decision science in fundraising. There are 26 different modules in total. Most importantly you’ll know how to make these all add up to a strategy. Start the journey!

I wanted to attend the School to improve my knowledge of the big strategic issues underpinning arts and cultural fundraising, especially since The Stage is an unusual semi-commercial agency I wanted to gain a deep understanding of how fundraising can work.

As someone new to fundraising NAFS gave me the skills to hit the ground running & grow my career fast. Just four years later I am now a fundraising manager at the largest performing arts organisation in Scotland, and a Trustee for three arts charities.
