Join West Midlands Museum Development and Adam Siviter, Fundraising Manager for Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, for this introductory workshop on fundraising from grant-making Trusts and Foundations.
The workshop is primarily aimed at smaller museums who might not have a Trust fundraising strategy.
Trust fundraising refers to applying for grants/ donations from grant-making Trusts and Foundations whose main remit is to make grants to registered charities/ other charitable organisations or community projects to support their work. In the UK alone, there are over 8,000 grant-making Trusts and Foundations who give in excess of £3billion annually to charities.
Adam will give an overview on defining the charitable need of your museum and the developing a ‘case for support’, as well as good working practices on research and making the ask through a robust Trust fundraising strategy.
Adam Siviter has worked in the charity sector for over 12 years as a fundraiser working for health and disability charities before joining the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust as Fundraising Manager in 2019. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.
