New year, new resolutions. Do you have big ambitions for your community group or cultural organisation? Dreaming big, but a sinking feeling, knowing you need more resources and a higher profile to get there?

Dublin’s Culture Connects and Business to Arts worked with a whole host of groups in 2017 helping them to grow their capacity, and we’re offering you the opportunity to participate for free in 2018 also!

Fundraising is hard, right?

What makes it hard is trying to sell your vision and mission to people who have never heard of you or who aren’t sure what it is you do or what your group achieves. That’s why any move towards a fundraising campaign should start with the work of growing your audience first and maximising their excitement about what you do.

How do you grow your audience and buzz? Marketing!

Dublin’s Culture Connects is delighted to be again working with Business to Arts to offer an Introduction to Marketing seminar; which will be followed later in the year by an Introduction to Fundraising seminar. You DEFINITELY should work on your Marketing before your Fundraising. Last year’s participants found the sessions really useful and even small interventions gave strong results.

Join us and see for yourself! Looking forward to meeting you then.

It offers part funding toward the employment of full-time fundraising or marketing & fundraising human resources contracted over a 24-month period and the recruited Fellows will take part in a structured programme of training and mentorship as part of the Fellowship.
