Get Grants Using Data to Increase Fundraising Success Course adapts our face-to-face Using Data to Increase Fundraising Success Course online. It will aid you in incorporating freely available data, simple analysis, monitoring, and evaluation into your fundraising efforts. During our course, you will learn the importance including a range of data in your funding applications and implementing effective project monitoring & evaluation to improve your chance of fundraising success.
Who is this course for?
This course is tailored to charities and community groups who are looking to increase their fundraising success.
You might be new to fundraising and looking to increase your confidence in finding and using data effectively, or you might be looking to improve your understanding of the fundraising process, and the types of data funders expect you to include in applications.
What to expect
During this two-day course, you will look closely at:
- identifying the need for your project;
- describing your activities and the change they will make;
- how you will evaluate your project and measure your impact;
- utilising data collected on current/completed projects to evidence need for your next project;
- using data effectively within bid writing and general fundraising efforts.
The first part of the course will focus on identifying and communicating the need for your project. This is fundamental for any fundraising project, as funders want to know who your project will benefit and why it is needed.
Next, you will look at the difference between project outcomes and outputs as a way of describing the change that your project will make to your target beneficiaries.
Finally, you will learn how to evaluate your project and measure the impact you’ve had. This will help you to develop simple ways of gathering and analysing data, before using this to understand the need for your next project!
This course is designed to be friendly and accessible, It provides the attendees the same content as our regular course without the location restrictions. Attendees will have access to advice and guidance from experienced experts in data and evaluation for the third sector.
I just wanted to re-iterate how much I enjoyed yesterday’s course. I learned some new techniques like the “logic model” which I will definitely be using in future and came away feeling very motivated.Rachel Hawkesworth, Springfield Project
