We are delighted to work with Pebblebeach who are offering this free webinar to NICVA members, focusing on individual giving.

This session is suitable for charities and fundraisers just starting out on their individual giving fundraising journey; and those looking to take their programme to the next level.

The session will be led by Elley Martin and Ash Gilbert, who respectively, have 16 and 20+ years’ experience of fundraising in Northern Ireland.  Elley and Ash will show how charities of all sizes can successfully raise funds from individuals and provide a simple plan you can take away and implement in your own organisation.

Content of session

  • Audience – how to analyse your prospective audience for a campaign and how to select the right people to approach
  • Proposition – how to create a strong, tangible fundraising proposition that will maximise response
