Basic Governance and Fundraising Essentials for Ethnic Minority Organisations

Primary tabs

19 September 2019 -
10:00am to 1:00pm

In support of Good Relations Week this September, NICVA is hosting a workshop for Ethnic Minority Organisations. This workshop is aimed at emerging or newly established organisations who give specific support to ethnic minority communities who wish to obtain a better understanding of basic governance and fundraising essentials. The skills and expertise gained during the session will support the development of strong organisational structures and frameworks.

We will be joined on the day by the Community Relation Council's Director of Funding and Development, Paul Jordan, to talk about Good Relations Week 2019 which focuses on the theme of 'People Making Change for Peace'. There will also be an opportunity for pariticpants to hear about CRC's grant aid.  It is hoped that this information can encourage participating organisations to become involved in activities around peace-building and reconciliation and help people to make change for peace.

We will then hear from our Governance and Charity Advice officer Denise Copeland on 

Understanding Governance – what you need to know about your role on the committee

Good Governance is essential for an organisation to be properly managed, be effective and meet legal requirements. This session will cover the basics of  governance requirements, including legal duties of trustees and the role of the committee and its office bearers.  It will also cover the key aspects of the governing document (eg constitution) to highlight the compliance requirements contained within it.

Find out more information on governance and charity advice here.

Fundraising Advice Officer Lynn Kennedy will then provide participants with an overview on 

Understanding fundraising

With all forms of fundraising becoming increasingly competitive, it is vital that organisations choose the most effective forms of fundraising for their particular organisation.  Not all fundraising methods suit all organisations.  This session will provide a brief overview of different methods of fundraising, along with what you need to know to be successful in using them.

We would be grateful if you would let us know if you have any particular governance or fundraising issues so that we can cover these in the session. Please include these in the 'any specific requirements' box below.

This session is open to any voluntary and community organisation representing ethnic minority interests and is free to attend. Due to the limited availabily of spaces, we would ask that there be one representative per organisation. Places are available on a first come first serve basis.
