Free Fundraising Advice Clinics Across NI ALL FULLY BOOKED

Thanks to the generosity of Trusthouse Charitable Foundation, NICVA’s free fundraising advice clinics are going “on the road”.  

Free clinics will be provided across NI to provide voluntary organisations with an hour of 1:1 fundraising advice.

These clinics will be run in partnership with North Antrim Community Network, The Fermanagh Trust, Omagh Forum for Rural Associations, Confederation of Community Groups, North West Community Network and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon (ABC) Borough Council and Ards and North Down Borough Council.

Organisations can book a free one hour slot with Lynn Kennedy, NICVA’s Fundraising Advice Officer, for discussing current funding applications, exploring potential new sources of income, developing a fundraising plan or a fundraising strategy or simply taking the opportunity to have a sounding board regarding anything fundraising-related. You can also just search for suitable grants on GrantTracker.  The clinics are 1-1 but those attending are welcome to bring along others from their organisation.

The hour is entirely yours.
