About this course

By the end of this truly dynamic training course you will know what it takes to draft and submit the highest quality bids and grant applications for your clients. You will know how to help them build an efficient and successful in-house fundraising team.

You will be able to advise and assist in multiple funding projects using a wide and diverse range of fundraising strategies and techniques. All this while gaining a unique understanding of how the top UK and international charities raise over 90% of their income. Not one bad review from hundreds of students at both our live and online courses speaks for itself.

For many the main module of interest will be How to submit Great Grant Applications. However we feel it is important that any bid writer or fundraising consultant should have a clear grasp of the wider view of fundraising, especially the other six of the Seven Secrets. Namely:

  • How to build a winning team
  • Understanding the fundraising cycle;
  • Mastering and exploiting the database;
  • Developing the case for support;
  • Building the corporate profile;
  • Exploring different fundraising options.
