The sector is crying out for core costs funding. Fundraisers consistently tell us that core costs are one of their greatest fundraising challenges.
Despite increasing pressure, many fundraisers don’t feel as confident applying to grant funders for core costs.
Also referred to as running costs, overheads, operating costs, organisational costs, and central costs, funders’ definitions and willingness to fund core costs can be unclear and vary wildly.
Understandably, this can feel complicated and overwhelming!
In our NEW Core Costs MASTERCLASS, we invite you to put everything you know and feel about core costs aside and join us to explore a practical approach to core costs grant fundraising that you can confidently put into practice.
Led by Get Grants Founder & Director John Ellery, this Masterclass will give you a framework for fundraising for your core costs that is simple and achievable for fundraisers of all levels of experience.
Who is it for?
This Masterclass has a focus on bid writing and will benefit anyone who works in grant fundraising or with responsibilities for fundraising within their role.
This session is appropriate for people of all levels of experience and organisations across the sector.
What to expect
During this 1-hour session, we will cover:
